Pitchfork Music Festival Wed May 14 2014
Some say that poetry is music. We'd like to add that an experience as unique and magical as a 3-day music festival in the middle of Chicago is something best captured in a poem. Better yet, a hiaku. That's right, we're daring you to create haikus about the Pitchfork Music Festival. Just write your most poignant thoughts down in a 5/7/5 syllable haiku in the comments below (Be sure to include a valid email address!) and we'll pick 2 winners to receive a 3-day pass to this year's fest!
Haikus must be entered in
comments below by 3pm Friday, 5/16. We'll notify winners by email. Write as many haikus as you like! [Update! We've notified our 2 winners by email! Thanks for all the amazing entries!]
Need inspiration? Here are a few to inspire you, by Transmission writer Mike Bellis:
Would you like to see
Pitchfork's summer jubilee
All three days, for FREE?
Gapers has your back;
A way to watch Slowdive and
Neutral Milk attack
Send us some haikus
On some of Pitchfork's who's who's
And we'll cure your blues
Five, seven and five
Rhyming's swell, if you can jive
If not, well, that's cool.
How could you delay?
Grimes and St Vincent await --
