Skepta, Chromatics, Charli XCX and Belle & Sebastian announced for this year’s Pitchfork Paris festival

The French capital hosts some superb names for this year’s autumn bash

Pitchfork Paris has unveiled its first batch of names for this year’s festival, with Skepta, Chromatics, Charli XCX and Belle & Sebastian leading the way.

The festival boasts its most diverse line-up yet, plus an expansion from two stages to four in the city’s Grande Halle de la Villette.

Elswhere, there’s a spot for our recent cover star Slowthai, as well as Mura Masa, Flohio, Ezra Collective, Jessica Pratt and more.

DIY was last at the festival back in 2017, where we found an offering of “eclecticism in the extreme, satisfying every itch in the process.”
