[EVENT & PLAYLIST] Pickathon Festival
This weekend Oregon's Happy Valley will be treated to the annual music extravaganza that is Pickathon. Nestled amongst the beautiful landscape of Pendarvis Farm, the festival boasts an impressive layout to camp, enjoy great music and become part of a community for the summer's weekend. The boutique music festival remains true to their core beliefs: sustainability, presenting a healthy roster of quality music & creating intimate and unique performance spaces. It is refreshing to see festivals like this still in existence; ones that aim to curate overall experiences, with attention and though put into the music, community and atmosphere.
This year, we will be sending our Oregon correspondents, Aaron and Drew to experience the festival on our behalf. The weekend plays host to a solid lineup, each performance surely to be incredible.
Here's who we'd recommend seeing: Warpaint, The War on Drugs, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Shakey Graves, Foxygen, Courtney Barnett, Parquet Courts, Angel Olsen, Woods, Spanish Gold, Mikal Cronin, Mac DeMarco, Ages & Ages, The Men, Valerie June, Nickel Creek, Houndstooth, & Quilt.
