We’re off to Chicago! This weekend, the 2016 edition of Pitchfork Music Festival hits the Windy City for the 11th consecutive year. Indie kids, hypebeasts, and rock dads will invade Union Park, lured by reunited supergroup Broken Social Scene, living legend Brian Wilson performing the seminal Beach Boys album Pet Sounds, festival-must Sufjan Stevens, and pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen.

But don’t worry if you’re not attending this time around; we got your back. We’ve put together an Apple Music playlist with essential tracks from the artists we can’t miss. Hear our favorite songs from this year’s Latinx indie standard-bearers: Neon Indian, Empress Of, and Miguel, as well as music from favorites FKA twigs, Blood Orange, Shamir, and many more. We guarantee this playlist will help you plan the weekend stress-free. Click play and join the festival fever.
