An Epic, Moving Gallery of the Pitchfork Music Festival: Paris

This past weekend Pitchfork, hosted its second ever three-day Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris. Set in a 19th century slaughterhouse, it was a sea of beautiful humans of the French hipster variety. Forget the general debauchery that is often witnessed at music festivals—guests were effortlessly chilled, chain smoking cigarettes and dressed in their finest fall overcoats. The event welcomed an international crowd, with many European nations represented. The set-up proved to be flawlessly French as well: the venue housed two vintage black and white photobooths and a food court offering a French twist on the American hamburger, along with baguettes and French pastries. The impressive line-up included Animal Collective, M83, Robyn, Purity Ring, Twin Shadow, John Talabot, and Simian Mobile Disco, along with 27 other artists and bands. We were lucky enough to attend, and rather than share the experience with a bunch of staid photographs, we did the next best thing: we made GIFs.
