All the Details on Flatstock 17

If you’re heading to Chicago this weekend to catch the big Pitchfork music fest, we highly recommend skipping the massive, sweaty crowds for a good chunk of the day and heading over to the Flatstock 17 poster convention. Because really, who needs to see a band when you can just go get a fantastic, limited edition screenprinted poster promoting said group? We say this, of course, in all seriousness, given that our house is full of posters for events we never attended and bands we don’t really even like all that much. But whatever your preferences are, if you’re in town, it’s well worth your time checking it out and meeting some of the best designers working today. But before you go, we highly recommend heading straight to the source by checking out this forum on American Poster Institute‘s site for a whole slew of Flatstock details.
