Independent partying on a grand scale
Eclectic in style and music, Pitchfork Paris is back with a grand soundscape, promising tunes to suit every cutting edge, new music junky. Featuring the pop sounds of Belle & Sebastian, the dreamy synth of CHVRCHES and the indie rock sounds of The War On Drugs, the festival is set to return with it's signature cool attitude.
Run by the trend-setting music magazine of the same name, Pitchfork Paris will fill the huge Grande Halle de La Villette with a true showcase, full of adored bands, genre-defying performers and "catch-them-before-they're-famous" newbies.
Aside from the sights and sounds, the festival also celebrates the indie ideology and focus on creativity through a variety of market stalls, pop up record stores, art exhibitions, vintage clothes markets and all kinds of unique wonders.
If you want to ditch the mainstream and experience another aspect of the music scene, then Pitchfork Paris is waiting for you.

Grande Halle De La Villette, 211 Avenue Jean Jaurès, Paris, 75019, France
Charles de Gaulle is very near to the centre of Paris, and is the closest International airport.
From there, it makes sense to buy a Paris Metro Pass for Zones 1-5, which will cost about €35 for a 1 day pass. RER B Trains run depart regularly from Terminals 1 and 2 at Charles de Gaulle, taking 25-30 minutes to reach Gare du Nord.
From Gare du Nord, a Metro M5 line takes 14 minutes to the Porte de Pantin station. The Parc d la Villette is on the north side of the main road, best reached by the Avenue Jean Jaurès exit from the station.
The 2014 times have not yet been confirmed; however, last year the first acts took to the stage around 12:00 noon, with later acts finishing around 06:00 in the morning. Bands on the Saturday then started around 15:00.
