#11 Pitchfork Music Festival 2011
[http://www.pitchforkmusicfestival.com/] Get the most bang for your buck—and even though we're talking about a music festival, just let that bang also be a double entendre because not only is the 40 band shindig reasonably priced at $45 a day, it's located in Chicago's romantic, harbor side Union Park. The awesome music blog's seventh annual summer festival has pulled some of the biggest names in indie rock, electronica, hip hop and folk like Animal Collective, Deerhunter, DJ Shadow, Fleet Foxes, and TV on the Radio. Even thought it's three days in the mid-July heat, scoring tickets to these shows will make you seem oh-so cool.
