Like every year since its inception, Sodwee.com covers the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris taking place right in his neighbourhood during Halloween Weekend. It’s a mammoth three day bonanza of the wildest, freshest and best new music acts out there. Hosted, for the Main Event in the grandiose location that is La Grande Halle De La Villette in the North Eastern part of the French capital, in the brilliance that is my beloved home district. An increasingly popular, multi-ethnic and nothing short of amazing (non-biased opinion here obviously) part of working Paris with plenty to do, parks to gaze in, bars to dive in, restaurants to eat in and above all the best “arrondissement” in Paris to stay/live in. The event itself is nestled within one of the biggest, if not THE biggest park in Paris. Plenty of green around, plenty of futuristic architecture with the new addition of the Paris Philharmonic that was inaugurated two years ago now.
The festival is held in a brilliant indoor venue, not to mention HUGE and people who have attended before will tell you that it’s one of the best festivals around because it is still pretty much human sized, it’s not mammoth like Glastonbury and above all it is indoors. In November : it better be. Pitchfork Music Festival Paris usually sees one of the best line-up around if you are looking for something a little more progressive, avant-garde, upcoming than any other festival taking place out there.
