Condé Nast – which own titles like Vanity Fair and Vogue – have purchased music publication Pitchfork for an undisclosed fee.

“Pitchfork is incredibly fortunate to have found in Condé Nast a team of people who share our commitment to editorial excellence,” explained Pitchfork’s founder Ryan Schreiber in a statement released earlier today.

“Their belief in what we do, combined with their additional expertise and resources, will allow us to extend our coverage of the artists and stories that shape the music landscape on every platform.”

Not only is Pitchfork one of the most respected music publications in the world, they also have a burgeoning live music arm that puts on festivals in the Chicago and Paris, and they publish a quarterly print magazine called The Pitchfork Review which focuses on long-form music writing and design-focused content.
