Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, Yo La Tengo, Beach House, Ty Segall and the Muggers, Ibeyi and more are slated to perform at this year's Pickathon Music Festival, happening August 5-7 at Pendarvis Farm right outside of Portland, Oregon.
The annual music festival and Northwest music rite of passage rings in its 18th year this summer. Attendees are encouraged to arrive by bicycle or ride share, and the solar-powered, plastic-free fest is "the only outdoor music festival in the United States to minimize ALL single-use, cups, dishware, and utensils." Pickathon has been called "the chillest music festival" by Noisey and was recently lampooned in an episode of Portlandia featuring The Flaming Lips.
The entire lineup so far, with "more to come," features: Jeff Tweedy, Yo La Tengo, Beach House, Ty Segall & The Muggers, Black Mountain, The Oh Hellos, Patrick Watson, Thee Oh Sees, The James Hunter Six, Ibeyi, Fruit Bats, Dan Deacon, Julia Holter, BADBADNOTGOOD, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Alvvays, Protomartyr, Yemen Blues, La Luz, Ultimate Painting, Daniel Norgren, Boulevards, Mount Moriah, The Deslondes, Golden Rules, Moon Duo, Margo Price, Futurebirds, C.W. Stoneking, Ezra Furman, Adia Victoria, Vhöl, The Cairo Gang, Lindi Ortega, My Bubba, 10 String Symphony, Palehound, Kacy & Clayton, Foghorn Stringband, The Easy Leaves, The Wild Reeds, Sir Richard Bishop, I Draw Slow, and The Woolen Men.
Tickets and camping passes are on sale now, and start at $115 a day, plus parking. Click here for more information on Pickathon.
