My Pitchfork itinerary: Britt Julious 

Senior editor of high/low culture blog This Recording pumps up her kicks for Flying Lotus and Chromatics

Don't miss our critics' reviews of all the bands playing Saturday.

*My constants include finding the least-crowded cooling center, unsuccessfully avoid childhood frenemies, and count the number of black patrons in order to assuage festering cultural guilt as a weird black lady.

2 PM: I'm familiar with most of the musicians performing, but I'm not a dedicated fan, so I'm hoping to be converted to Cloud Nothings or Atlas Sound.

3 PM: Midday gives me time to wear a friend's press pass and feel important, eat more food than I anticipated, and check out the goods I'll purchase and try not to destroy. I'm excited for Coterie jewelry designers Cities in Dust and Ready-to-Stare, and Book Fort.

4:15 PM: Nicolas Jaar and Flying Lotus within 30 minutes of each other is cruel, but I imagine Lotus's often downtempo beats would work nicely as the day finally begins to cool down.

6:45 PM: Chromatics at dusk is wish fulfillment. Performing any earlier in the day would be an insult to such evening-friendly music.

8:40 PM: Grimes is my new favorite Galactic Fairy Princess. I'm excited to see her close out the night and charm us with her weirdness and spirit.

Next: Alison Cuddy on Cults and Hot Chip.
