Headliners Skepta and Chromatics will be joined by The 1975 at the ninth edition of Pitchfork Paris

Le line-up est très bon

The ninth edition of Pitchfork Paris is shaping up. Joining headliners Skepta and a rare show from Chromatics will be The 1975 on Saturday 2 November.

Ahead of that around 50 artists will play across 4 stages at Le Grande Halle de la Villette, Paris (Oct 31 – Nov 2).

Two of those stages are new so that they can fit in more performances. That means on the opening night there will be shows from Mura Masa, Hamza, Zola, Ezra Collective, Flohio, Kojey Radical, slowthai and The Comet is Coming. On Friday before Chromatics close, Belle & Sebastian, Primal Scream, Chai, Drugdealer, Jackie Mendoza, Nilufer Yanya, Orville Peck, Sheer Mag and Squid will be on. The final day is more pop. Charli XCX, Aurora, SebastiAn and Jamilla Woods will all appear. That’s just a taste. The line-up poster is below.

For info and tickets head to the Pitchfork Paris site. Three day passes start at €120, which is pretty good isn’t it? Vraiment!
