Pitchfork Festival Tickets Giveaway (See Jane Jam)



As some of you may know, I'm an avid music lover.  Ever since I was a wee teenager, I was hitting up indie concerts and jamming out to the latest tunes (don't worry, I never lost my love for boy bands).  As soon as I moved to Chicago, I was attending the city's famous music festivals--Lollapalooza and Pitchfork.  Today, I'm teaming up with H&M and their H&M Loves Music campaign to give away a pair of 3-day passes to the Pitchfork Music Festival on July 19-21 in Chicago.

As we all know, style has become just as big of a part of the festival scene as the music, so to enter, simply leave a comment telling me what you'll wear to Pitchfork if you win the tickets (here's what I wore to Pitchfork a couple years back).

A few logistics about this contest:
- The concert is located in Chicago, but if you're willing to travel here, please enter!

- Be sure to visit the H&M tent on the festival grounds with a GIF booth, wifi, charging stations, air conditioning, a freshen up area with Kiehl’s products, Incoco nail polish strips, a hairstylist to braid and style hair to help beat the summer heat, DJs and giveaways.
- Contest will run until midnight Sunday morning; tickets will be shipped out to the winner on Monday morning.
- Hope to see you there!

I would love to win this! I've contemplated going for years. I live in Milwaukee and I have some friends going (and friends/relatives to stay with in Chicago). I would wear a vibrantly patterned maxi that I recently bought in San Juan, black racerback tank and flat leather sandals. Panama hat, Ray Bans and crossbody bag a must. Awesome giveaway, love the blog!

I'd wear a long-sleeved khaki green button-down shirt over a neon racerback tank, lace shorts, leather sandals and/or sneakers depending on the show (aka how much dancing I have to do). My dog Sasha is a big fan of Jerome -- tell him she says hi! Thanks for such a great giveaway!

April Giannosa said...

I would so love to go, A! (I could really use a date night!!) If the weather cooperates, and there's no rain, I'd probably wear these high-waisted striped shorts and a graphic tee.

Thanks for hosting the giveaway!!

What an amazing giveaway!

For summer festivals i like to go comfortable, easy, and anything that will help me beat the chicago heat! i would wear a lace/sheer tank with a bralette on top and on the bottom I would likely rock a pair of well worn jean shorts and chunky leather belt - easier for sitting down when the heat finally wins. As for the shoes, definitely strappy, flat, gladiator sandals. Hair in a braid with a straw fedora and my favorite Betsy Johnson tortoise shell sunnies. Last but not least, my go-to H&M crossbody bag - big enough to fit everything I need but small enough to stay out of the way!

Thanks again for the giveaway!

Ahhh I'm in the middle of my OB/Gyn rotation and would love a fun little weekend in Chicago! Summer music festivals and the city in summertime are my fave!

I've been loving flowy short dresses esp ones with light floral patterns and fun backs (am I the only one obsessed with braided straps?!). Also a pair of strappy Zara leather sandals and a crossbody bag to keep a disposable camera, my iphone and RayBans :)

Amazing giveaway - I really hope I win!!

This is my first Chicago summer and I'm having a blast so far and would LOVE to go to Pitchfork! I'm obsessed with a striped maxidress I got a few weeks ago, but if this humidity keeps up I'll have to go with a standby short floral sundress. Obviously cushioned gladiator sandals, braided up-do to keep my hair away, a crossbody Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, and my trusty Ray-Bans.

Mira said...

Love your picks. Esp. the maxi dress and the shorts.

Hi Anna! I've already gone to a music festival this summer and this is what I wore - a black crochet top with jean cut off shorts and comfy purple sandals. Fingers crossed I win, I've been to Chicago for Lolla years ago so I know this would be so fun!!

Sadie said...

I live in Chicago and have always contemplated going but have never pulled the trigger...if I end up going I'll wear my new coral gap dress and a pair of brown leather sandals!

After going last year and almost melting in the sun, I will definitely be wearing something super light and flowy!

Jill said...

Aww bummer I won't be in town for this (I'll be in Greece for my honeymoon!!). So cute to see you a few years back! Your hair was so long and your lips, so pink!

Meanne said...

Love this! I always wear a nice sheer tank top with a pretty bra and denim cutoffs with booties!

evonborcke said...

Pitchfork is my favorite of the Chicago festivals! Comfy shoes are key so I would wear my bright red superga sneakers with some jean short cut offs and a breezy loose printed tank top (keep cool and no awkward tan lines!). To finish the look I'd wear my reflective ray-bans, same color as the ones you featured in this post!

Car said...

Such cute picks! I would wear my massive vintage felt Joni Mitchell style hat and a breezy floral print sundress to the festival. and comfy shoes are a must.

Fashion Jewelry said...

These are awesome picks. Great work.

Huck said...

I would definitely throw on some high waisted denim cutoffs with an easy white flowy tank and some embellished sandals. Casual and chic!

Angie said...

I just moved to Chicago in March and I would love to be able to go to Pitchfork and really take in the festival scene in the city!

I would wear my ecote double layer chiffon dress with brown leather gladiator sandals, a fedora a bought in Thailand two summers ago, and my ray ban aviators :)

Eileen said...

Oooh love the shorts! Would love to win!!

emma said...

I would wear jean shorts and a flowy white top to stay cool! and my new liberty london nikes so my feet stay comfortable.

sundress and sandals and perhaps a floppy hat :) great giveaway!

Sam said...

If it stays as hot and humid as it's been in Chicago, I would definitely wear jorts with a loose white tank and either booties or gladiator sandals. Hope I get the opportunity to go!

Sarah said...

Oh man I would LOVE to go.R Kelly is playing on my birthday and it'd be the best present ever.

I'd probably go with some short shorts since its so hot, a white tanktop and some converse-so that I wouldn't mind them getting dirty in the Union park grass

:)

Gina said...

I'd probably wear a pair of denim cutoffs and a cute sleeveless shirt, paired with some of my most comfortable sandals! Great giveaway!

Unknown said...

I would wear a nude lace bra under a flowy white bohemian mexican embroidered top tucked into vintage high waist levis. For accessories, I would carry a leather bucket bag for all my festival needs. Shoes would have to be simple leather sandals (everlane or chloe style) for comfort. And camel colored clubmaster-style wayfarers to keep the sun out of my eyes.

Erin Noonan said...

I would wear a flowy maxi dress and a utility jacket everyday, classic festival style!

Sarah said...

I would wear a white crochet tunic dress, brown gladiator sandals, tortoise sunglasses from H&M, and a cross body bag with gold details. I've been trying to come up with a perfect excuse to wear a crochet tunic dress and Pitchfork would be a great reason to wear one :)

Jourdin Batchelor said...

So fun! I would wear lace shorts, black booties, and a sleeveless button down. Thanks!

Ally said...

Those shorts are so cute!

Rachel C. said...

I'd wear a sheer black tie-front top with high-waisted colorful denim shorts and Doc Martens--effortless, festive, a little sexy, and a little rock-and-roll. To keep my hands free I'd have to have a cross-body bag from H&M. Hair would be long and flowy with a scarf to tie it back after all the dancing I plan on doing to M.I.A.!

Amy said...

I would wear jean cutoffs and a breezy tank top, with gladiator sandals and some aviators. I'm a big fan of the blog! Thanks!

Kfold said...

I would wear a pair of DIY cutoff jean shorts with a simple white sleeveless button-down. I'd be sure to bring along my new Zara army green moto jacket just in case, my black Rebecca Minkoff 5zip cross-body , and my Target ankle booties. If I get them (early) Madewell hepcat sunglass for my birthday on July 24th, I'll be turning 26. Finishing touches: gold watch, gold bands, my Nepal Mission Bracelets, and simple bar studs.

Sapphire To Deadwood said...

Big sunnies, a Religion tank and maxi skirt. Simple.

Amy said...

I've lived here for 6 years now and have never been to Pitchfork!

I'd definitely have to wear something to combat the sticky heat we've been getting these days - plain, loose white t with a red crocheted club monaco skirt and leather strap madewell sandals. Finish the look off with a crossbody bag and an icy pop!

Usapan Teppratoom said...

I would wear my madewell romper, steven alan sandals, and lots of SPF!

BTW, thanks for representing as a CHI-town blogger.

katie said...

i would love to go! i would wear perfectly ripped up cutoffs with a black tank, fedora, and dainty gold jewelry!

Jo said...

I'd wear denim shorts and a flowy cropped white tank and simple brown leather sandals. A small studded crossbody to keep my essentials close, and messy tousled hair! Woo!

Daja Jackson said...

Well this took me awhile to figure out since this would be my FIRST PITCHFORK EXPERIENCE as this is my first summer as a Chicago resident! My friend has 3day passes so this would be great to win so we can have our 1st Pitchfork experience together.

As far as my outfit, I am going with a very summer but edgy look by wearing dark brown jean shorts and a light, long sleeve blouse. The blouse will be a highlight because it screams character. I also want to be comfortable and not sweat much so the light blouse is practical. For shoes, I have a black pair of knee high boots that I absolutely love and feel would go great with the concert atmosphere. Lastly, I will have a black hat that resembles a kango.

As far as jewelry I leave it simply with a few gold bracelets and my watch as well as my necklace and hoop earrings.

This definietly represents not only my style, but how I usually dress for concerts. Thanks for the opportunity!

Chrissy Treat said...

Second summer living here and I'd love to go! I'd wear my Sam Edelman gladiator sandals, topshop hi lo skirt, a drapey white tank to stay breezy, and my trusty J Crew Panama hat!

finedesign said...

thanks for the contest. i keep it simple, old pair of all-stars on the feet, sans-socks. shorts with an ample supply of pockets and maybe my "start making sense" t-shirt from quite life.

Allison said...

I've been in Chicago three years, and I've been dying to go to Pitchfork! You could find me in a black maxi dress, my favorite panama hat, and an arm full of bracelets!

Crossing my fingers (as is my little brother who would be my concert companion!) :)

meaghan said...

Thanks for hosting this contest!!!

If I could go to Pitchfork, I'd be so excited the day of that I'd probably dress really haphazardly! Thinking about it now, I think I'd like to wear my favorite shirt - this grey racerback tank top with a screen-printed image of a sleek fox riding a road bike - with my most comfortable shorts, these black acid-washed high-waisted shorts (w/ an elastic waist!) from American Apparel. I'd also wear these teal Teva sandals (maybe slightly nerdy, but also so comfortable!). Then of course, some cool shades!

JayBoutique said...

I love your festival look! I just got a dress that I would love to wear to Pitchfork. It is an off-white with crochet detailing at the top and flow-y at the bottom. I live in Chicago, it would be so great to win tickets :)

Melissa M said...

What an awesome giveaway! Easy and effortless would definitely influence my look for the day. Living in Chicago and attending pforks of the past - it always seems as though it happens on the warmest day of the year! :)

I'd wear my h&m demin shirtdress, illesteva leonards, my go-with-everything madewell sandals and a baggu bag just big enough for sunscreen and a bottle of water.

http://imgur.com/9QGP79U

Would love to go to pfest this year not only for the lineup this year (joanna newsom! r kelly!! andy stott!!!!!!), but would love to meet up and chat with you!

Fingers x'd!


Andrew Carlson said...

My absolute best pitchfork outfit would be casual and breezy. Perhaps a tank and khaki cut offs. I'd have to have sunglasses and a watch and my girlfriend for a great weekend.

Eileen said...

Great giveaway love the shorts. I'm all about an easy dress and bensimons.
