Pitchfork, online music magazine brand commonly associated with an eclectic and alternative curated musical sensibility, will throw its inaugural London-based festival starting next week!
Playing host to a series of bespoke individual events across the city, as opposed to merely one festival location, the Pitchfork London 2021 event boasts exclusive live performances featuring over fifty artists including Stereolab, Moses Boyd, Black Midi, Metronomy (launching their new album), Tirzah, Anna Meredith, Mykki Blanco & more.
The London incarnation will play back-to-back with Pitchfork Music Festival Paris (itself running November 16-20) and will feature a mix of unique, one-off individual performances, collaborations, special showcases and curated multi-act line-ups. Metronomy launch their new album, the PC Music label present "Love Goes On" - a showcase from the label & friends at Fire Nightclub, plus vital contemporary talents Anna Meredith, Mykki Blanco and more will top curated bills at Fabric and Village Underground respectively. There will be a late night Friday appearance at the Southbank Centre from breakthrough art-rock band Black Midi, plus more other special weekday events.
The weekend then turns to multi-act festival line-ups: Stereolab make a rare London appearance to headline the Roundhouse (14th November) featuring the likes of Girl Band, Beak>, Ana Roxanne and more, whilst Moses Boyd, Nilüfer Yanya, Emma Jean Thackary & Cktrl will play Hackney Church (13th November), and Tirzah, Koreless, Mica Levi's Good Sad Happy Bad project and many more appear on a club-orientated line up across 3 x venues in the Oval Space compound (13th November).
Tickets for each event will be sold separately. Tickets in partnership with DICE will be available from http://pitchforkmusicfestival.co.uk/.
