Pickathon 2013 Announce Dates and Lineup
Pickathon is turning 15, It’s happening Friday, August 2nd – Sunday, August 4th at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, OR (a mere 15 minutes from downtown Portland). 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 includes Feist, Andrew Bird, Divine Fits, Sharon Van Etten, The Devil Makes Three, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside, Vieux 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.
