How many stages are there at Pitchfork Music Festival?
There are three stages at the Pitchfork Music Festival. Stages vary in size and genre-specific relevance, so they each get their own day to shine.
The Pitchfork stage is prestigious and usually features more established artists, people who have already had a number of years to develop and hone their talent. The Full Metal Stage features blisteringly loud hardcore bands that would not be welcome on any other stage in the festival. And the Green Stage has mostly African-American rap acts from Chicago and beyond for an edgier experience like nothing else at Pitchfork.
