Pitchfork’s inaugural Midwinter Festival is coming up in less than a month, and add-on tickets for names like Slowdive, Grouper, Kamasi Washington, Tortoise, and Deerhunter (to name a few) are already sold out. The natural question to ask is: is it still worth it to go if you haven’t bought tickets yet? Exploring the lineup of lesser-known artists on the bill, I’d say the answer is yes (plus, JPEGMAFIA isn’t sold out yet, and seeing his inexhaustible energy shaking up an art museum is an experience money can’t buy). The base tickets for Midwinter include performances from a lineup of excellent folk and indie artists. Check out some highlights below!
