The Art Institute of Chicago and Pitchfork present Midwinter, a new music and art experience that will take over nearly every space of the Art Institute.

For three nights in February, 30+ musical acts, including Kamasi Washington, Oneohtrix Point Never, Laurie Anderson, Panda Bear, and many others, will perform amid masterpieces from the museum’s collection. See below for full lineup.

Tickets are now on sale.
Please note that three-night passes and tickets for Friday and Saturday are now sold out.


To attend Midwinter, start by purchasing a Base Ticket, which provides access to many experiences throughout the museum, including performances and music installations in the galleries, live interviews and broadcasts by Pitchfork Radio, and access to most of the museum’s collection.

There are eight additional shows per night that require an Add-On Ticket purchase to access. These are identified on the Schedule page and you can select to add these shows to your cart during checkout.
