Like you probably all know by now, we like music and especially discovering new bands. Pitchfork Media, or simply Pitchfork, is perfect for this. It’s a website were you’ll find a lot of reviews, music criticism, music news and interviews with artists and bands.
Pitchfork also provides you with best-of lists in every music genre and every year, they give you a list with the best singles and albums of that year.
At the beginning, the site's focus was independent music and especially indie rock, but now the range of musical genres extends to pop, hip-hop, heavy metal, electronic dance music and so on.
The site also provides a music player at which you can listen to a lot of new songs, as was as old, reviewed songs. And the best thing: it's all for free!
On July 29 and 30 2006, Pitchfork Music Festival premiered in the Chicago's Union Park. More than 40 bands performed. In 2007, the festival added a third day and since 2011, there's a winter edition in Paris. Just as the site itself, the strength of this festivals is their variety in musical genres, attracting people from all over the world.
