The Pitchfork Music Festival has been holding court in Chicago’s Union Park for a decade now, and the 2016 edition saw the fest’s eclectic tastes on full display. The A.V. Club was there once again but, this time around, we opted to do something a little different. This year we filmed videos with many of the weekend’s performers, and in lieu of a traditional write-up we’ve elected to let those do the talking for us. Those will be coming throughout the week, and here, we have a collection of photos taken by Robert Loerzel. For those not in attendance, it offers a peak into the fest and gives instant nostalgia for those lucky enough to make it. Let’s get to it!
