Pickathon 2011 Lineup Announced [Festival News]

by oz on February 15, 2011

For those of you looking for an alternative to Lollapalooza, meet Pickathon. It’s a festival that takes place the weekend of August 5-7 at Pendarvis Farm near Portland, Oregon. We’ve been talking to the festival organizers and I can personally attest for their passion in making this annual experience like no other festival.

In addition to great music, you’ll find gorgeous forested camping, miles of hiking trails, late night shows, workshops, and a family friendly experience.

Each artist plays at least two sets spread out across 3 days on 6 unique performance spaces, including stage you must hike to in the woods, a rocking late night stage in the Galaxy Barn (where the Decemberists recorded their latest album), a late night outdoor intimate stage under the stars, and two primary stages located under one of the world’s largest temporary tension fabric structures that is equal parts art and function.

Tickets can be purchased here.  The lineup was just announced and you can find the band list below. Stay tuned to their website for additions.
