What the music geek in high school looks like today. Peep the fashion of Pitchfork Music Festival 2008, held July 18-20 in Chicago. The eclectic lineup included Public Enemy to Vampire Weekend, but off-stage, some serious fashion could be seen.
Though the rain came and went over the three days of Pitchfork Music Festival, the occasional bikini was spotted. Also, any T-shirt with the logo of a 1980's TV show, music album, movie (like this guy's Ghostbusters shirt) was a constant fashion choice.
Wearing a basketball jersey is a good way to stay cool at an outdoor fest and a rather stylish way. Wearing short-shorts? Same reasons. But both at the same time makes one look like a bench warmer in a YMCA under-30 league.
Mud was a surging fashion trend at Pitchfork Music Festival '08, a style that guaranteed a conspicuous presence in any audience. Downfall: You're not getting into VIP, you're not getting into most merch tents and you're not getting to flirt with anyone -- unless they are also covered in mud.
