Kweku Collins Shares The Love and The Stage at Pitchfork

Pitchfork Music Festival - Sunday - Green Stage 2:30pm

Kweku Collins may be only 21 but he has been on the rise for several years. The Evanston-based rapper made clear the distinction between Chicago and Evanston, but shared the love and acceptance he has received from Chicago musicians and fans.

His set was one of the most energetic of the day and the crowd followed suit. The excitement peaked twice throughout the set, first when Collins was joined on stage by Milwaukee’s WebsterX to perform a new song called “Banz”. The second was when Chicago’s Anaji Jones took the stage to perform Kweku’s latest single, “Sisko and Kasidy” with him.

Kweku closed by saying he had been coming to Pitchfork for the last five years and was so gratefully to be performing. Showing he is and always will be a fan, he was later seen dancing with his girlfriend and Jones in the crowd during Chaka Khan’s set.


Pitchfork Music Fest: A Chicago Showcase

There are always a few slots on any music festival for local acts, but this year Pitchfork has really gone above and beyond. Not only have they put together diverse line-up, they have crafted a line-up that will truly showcase the diversity of Chicago music today.

You have an array of Hip Hop and R&B, with SABA, Rayvn Lenae, Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, Kweku Collins, Noname, and Open Mike Eagle, that the city on a larger scale has become known for. However, you have a strong presence of the DIY scene represented by Melkbelly, The Curls, Circuit Des Yeux and Paul Cherry.

While there are so many more acts from the city that could fit perfectly with the sound and feel of this Fest, they have done a remarkable job pulling National touring acts, obscure Avant-Jazz group, and talented Chicago musicians to create what should be the best festival this Summer.

Pitchfork Music Fest is this weekend, July 20th to the 22nd, at Union Park in Chicago.
