What to expect at Pitchfork Chicago…
Whether you are a first-time Pitchfork goer or a routine raver, it is always a good idea to be prepared.

- Skin Cancer isn’t cool.
- Cellphone Charger
- Pitchfork vendors have charging stations along with free SWAG.
- Keep the sun out of your eyes.
- So that you can play Pokemon Go! of course!
