Video Roundup: Pickathon 2014

Video Roundup, Pickathon, Local Music

This Friday, August 1st through Sunday, August 3rd marks the 16th Annual Pickathon Music Festival at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, and every year, the festival continues to live up to its city's name! The festival features a line-up of over fifty joy-inducing bands — including The War on Drugs, Warpaint, Valerie June, Foxygen, Mac DeMarco, Courtney Barnett, just to name a few — and most bands play twice during the festival. Tickets are still available here.

Can't make it to Happy Valley? Let KEXP bring the happiness to you with the festival's live video broadcast, featuring bands on both the Woods stage and the Galaxy Barn stage, and running from 11AM to 2AM each day. Find out more and view the video broadcast schedule here.

As in previous years, KEXP will be on-site to capture special, intimate performances from the artists over the weekend, which we will happily share with you later. But in the meanwhile, check out some previous KEXP live performances from the artists you'll see this weekend:
