After a bit of a slow start on Friday, this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival got off to a roaring start on Saturday with knotted and noisy sets from White Lung, KEN Mode and Pissed Jeans. And just when things started to calm down with a comfortably numb performance from Julia Holter, Swans managed to make quite a few clueless kids run for cover from their torrential downpour of slow-burning chords and devastating drones.

Here’s are some standout shots from the proceedings. We’ll have our last photo set from the festival later today…
