Pitchfork Media has just been acquired by Conde Nast, the mass media company that owns Vanity Fair and Vogue amongst a host of other luminary gobal titles. Launched in 1996, Pitchfork has grown from an online magazine to diving into both video and print mediums in its later years. They also host a self-titled music festival, which attracts artists including Solange Knowles (pictured). Celebrating its 20th anniversary this coming February, the site has been a go-to source for music news and also a platform for performers to showcase their talents.
"We’re incredibly fortunate to have found in Condé Nast a group of people who share every aspect of our focus," Pitchfork said on its website, adding, "Their 100+ years of experience in building brands marked by editorial integrity makes them a natural fit for Pitchfork, and their belief in what we do, combined with their additional expertise, will allow us to extend our coverage across all platforms while remaining true to the ideals that have made Pitchfork the most trusted voice in music."
