Indian head-dress, a tie-dye shirt featuring Jesus Christ, cut-off jean shorts. The outfit alone is probable cause for arrest in a few states.

Though the rain came and went over the three days of Pitchfork Music Festival, the occasional bikini was spotted. Also, any T-shirt with the logo of a 1980's TV show, music album, movie (like this guy's Ghostbusters shirt) was a constant fashion choice.

Wearing a basketball jersey is a good way to stay cool at an outdoor fest and a rather stylish way. Wearing short-shorts? Same reasons. But both at the same time makes one look like a bench warmer in a YMCA under-30 league.

Not content to show off lowest-common-denominator tattoos like Chinese symbols and/or lower-back tramp stamps, Pitchforkers showed off tats of a more indie-rock variety. Like unicorn tattoos.

Mud was a surging fashion trend at Pitchfork Music Festival '08, a style that guaranteed a conspicuous presence in any audience. Downfall: You're not getting into VIP, you're not getting into most merch tents and you're not getting to flirt with anyone -- unless they are also covered in mud.
