The Pygmalion Festival has a long history in the Midwest, by now. It has grown from a small local event featuring a few rising national artists into one that is now considered part of the national festival circuit, and brings fans from all over the Midwest and beyond. The intimacy of an unassuming but vibrant college town, paired with affordable tickets and limited capacity venues makes for one of the more memorable and fan-friendly festivals in the world. The event, which now has two other festivals running simultaneously - Literary and a Handmade Craft Fair - takes place over 4 days including 2 days of outdoor stages in the heart of bustling Downtown Champaign.
Over more recent years Pygmalion has attracted the likes of Grizzly Bear, Janelle Monae, Explosions in the Sky, Dinosaur Jr., Best Coast, The Head And The Heart, Cut Copy, Major Lazer and dozens and dozens more.
