Event Description

Pickathon Music Festival lineup: A diverse trend setting lineup unfolds across six unique performance venues that feel more like alternate reality musical rides than stages. Pickathon makes a range of choices that sets it apart from today’s mainstream festival culture; purposely maintaining a low crowd density, enabling families to thrive, recruiting the finest food and drink purveyors in Oregon, free and abundant water, eliminating plastic and minimizing single-use items, no sponsor vinyl banners, and an unrelenting focus on eliminating festival hassles in general.

“Pickathon is an admirably decentered, medium-size festival with an emphasis on communal, progressive values – from the bands, which all play twice, a welcome festival rarity (and some of which camp out, too), to the sustainability-minded dining options, to the quirks particular to the earthy Pacific Northwest.” – The New York Times

“The festival goes to great lengths to create a unique environment for attendees, from operating without corporate sponsors to creating seven distinctive performance venues to host Pickathon’s rock and folk-inclined lineup.” – USA Today

“The festival brings an impressive roster of indie talent to Pendarvis Farm for a relatively intimate event. The festival offers a more family-friendly vibe, including an entire schedule of events for kids, and food trucks that rival any food festival (or festival food) options.” – Time

“This may be hard to believe, but it’s an annual festival whose 3500 attendees contribute almost nothing to area landfills.” – Billboard

“Pickathon’s ethics work in conjunction with these stunning aesthetics. The Pendarvis family and organizers’ unparalleled commitment to sustainability distinguishes them from every other music festival in the world.” – Paste
