    Oswego officials say their festival would be patterned after Chicago's Pitchfork Music Festival.

    Oswego officials are considering holding a new music festival this summer that one trustee characterized as a "suburbun Pitchfork."

    The Oswego Beats and Eats would be an all-day music festival in Prairie Point Park on Aug. 10, and would include musicians and food vendors with local and regional followings, according to the Beacon-News.

    The Oswego Village Board recently had its first look at the proposed festival, which would highlight up-and-coming musicians, gourmet food trucks and local restaurants.

    Officials say the event could attract up to 10,000 people and would cost between $15 and $25.

    The trustees are expected to vote on the proposal soon.

    The Pitchfork Music Festival is held every year in Chicago in Union Park.
