Fleet Foxes, Animal Collective, and TV on the Radio are taking the main stage at this year’s three-day Pitchfork Music Festival. The festival is a leading annual event for indie music lovers, now entering its sixth year, and is set to take place in Chicago’s Union Park. This year the organizers have announced several environmental initiatives including aiming to recycle over 50 percent of waste, an extended bicycle park, the use of hybrid vehicles and generating all the festival’s power from bio-diesel.
