Pickathon won't just return to Happy Valley, Ore. this August 3-5, but it will also mark 20 years of this staple Northwestern festival. More than just gathering your favorite artists in the same place, Pickathon provides a whimsical forest setting with intricately designed stages, yoga sessions, craft beer, and more. In celebration of this momentous landmark, Pickathon has released the lineup for this year's fest with plenty to gawk at.
This year's poster takes an egalitarian approach, listing the artists in alphabetical order and forgoing a traditional "top bill headliner." Searching through the list you'll find a mix of heavy hitters and new faces. Broken Social Scene, Built to Spill, Jamila Woods, and Phosphorescent all make notable appearances on the lineup along with Jen Cohler, Milo, Sam Amidon, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and more.
Artists from across the Pacific Northwest get heavy representation on the lineup as well, including Karl Blau, HaleyHeynderickx, Sera Cahoone, and many more regional and non regional artists.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday, Jan. 27, at 8 a.m. PST here.
