This week we’re sending you on Traincation to Pitchfork music festival in Paris…

What’s it all about?
If you’re still not quite ready to give up the music festival summer season just yet then Pitchfork Festival in Paris will be on from November 1-3 to carry on the party. Depending on how much of a hardcore festival goer you are, you can buy either one or three day passes (if it was us we’d get the three-dayers, obvs). The bustling city is a camping free zone (meaning no muddy tents, wet clothes or wellies!) but there are plenty of hostels surrounding the site.

It’s definitely one not to miss with a packed set list from start to finish. Robyn, Jessie Ware, and Simian Mobile Disco are all lined up over the energetic three day festival and if that’s still not enough to tire you out, there are two after parties to carry on the vibe. Plus if you don’t get festival tickets in time, you can just hit up the after parties instead – check the website for details.

Getting There
This festival is really easy to get to – just catch the Eurostar from St Pancras station straight to Paris, which should take you roughly two hours. When you get to Gare du Nord Station, grab a croissant from one of the many cafes at the station for your local bus journey from La Grande Halle and get ready to party!

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
