Happy Valley in Oregon just sounds like a place you'd want to visit. It also happens to be the location of a truly one-of-a-kind festival - Pickathon. The event, held this year from July 31st - August 2nd boats a lineup worthy of some of the country's biggest festivals, but is kept at only 3,500 attendees to ensure an intimate atmosphere. True to the Northwest, the festival also maintains its independence by having absolutely no corporate sponsors, and is completely sustainability-minded.
This year sees Heartless Bastards, King Tuff, Thundercat, Broncho, Happyness, Leon Bridges, Rodrigo Amarante, Sinkane, Tinariwen, tUnE-yArDs, Ty Segall, Vetiver, William Tyler as well as a host of other amazing artists - all of whom will play twice over the course of the festival to ensure no one misses their favourite artists.
You can purchase tickets here, watch the trailer above, and listen to a playlist the festival organisers made. See you on the farm!
