Pickathon 2013 Line-up Announcment. August 2nd-4th.

February 20, 2013

255

Pickathon is turning 15 and, like a fine wine, it just keeps getting better! Happening Friday, August 2nd – Sunday, August 4th at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, OR (a mere 15 minutes from downtown Portland), this year promises to be the best ever. Since day one, the idea behind Pickathon has always been pretty simple: what does it take to be the best weekend festival of the year for music lovers? This question has driven Pickathon to highly refine an experience that has few peers.

Innovation has always been at the center of this process and through the years many important elements have come together; collaborating widely on yearly diverse lineups that are built on the idea of great music being the sole criteria; refining six unique performance venues designed to create juxtaposing alternate realities; trusting important decisions can be discussed and made with our online community such as maintaining a low crowd density; becoming the only large music festival to eliminate plastic and minimize single use items; recruiting the finest food and drink purveyors in the land; focusing constantly on eliminating “normal” festival hassles, and the list goes on.

This year’s lineup is truly a high point in Pickathon’s existence. We are pleased to welcomeFeist, Andrew Bird, Divine Fits, Sharon Van Etten, The Devil Makes Three, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Sallie Ford & The Sound OutsideVieux Farka Touré, Howe Gelb, Lady, Shabazz Palaces, The Felice Brothers, Tift Merritt, Wayne Hancock, Marco Benevento,The Lone Bellow, Dale Watson, Foxygen, Parquet Courts, Breathe Owl Breathe, White Fence, Yellowbirds, and so much more! The full lineup is below (though there might be a few surprises along the way, so stay tuned). Also, remember, each band is at the festival for two days, playing two sets on two of six very unique stages! Where else can you see a band play an outdoor festival set in front of thousands and the next night, witness the same band in a sweaty and rollicking rock club environment? Only at Pickathon!  Buy tickets here! , <—CLICK
