Photos: Pitchfork Festival Day Three with Ride, Jamila Woods, Joey Purp & More

The finale of Pitchfork Music Festival 2017 wasn’t without its buzzkill moments: reunited shoegazers Ride delayed their set after technical difficulties and The Avalanches cancelled last minute for a family emergency. But those same upsets paved the way for some of the day’s most revelatory moments—Chicago native Jamila Woods took the main green stage after The Avalanches’ departure, offering a presence that more than deserved the amplified attention. Woods svelte, textured R&B may have lacked the theatricality of The Avalanche’s bombastic samples and guest-heavy shows, but her mesmerizing flows and layered percussion marked one of the finest sets of the weekend. DeShaun Craddock returns with another gallery also featuring Joey Purp, NE-HI, Isaiah Rashad and Kilo Kish. Also check out Paste’s coverage of Pitchfork Festival 2017 Days One and Two.
