Pickathon is pleased to announce the addition of five new performers to the 2012 lineup: Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Bombino, Todd Snider, Casey MacGill, and The Cactus Blossoms. With that, we’re sitting at a cool 51 total artists for 2012 Pickathon. That’s one big, full weekend – Tickets are now available and won’t last long as we hit the homestretch.
Regretfully, with the additions, also comes a couple cancellations… C.W. Stoneking because of unresolvable visa issues, and Vieux Farka Touré due to a war-torn homeland that is having significant impact on close family and friends. We’ll miss them both and hope they can return in the future.
Beer! Wine! Cider!
Amongst the six stages spread out over 80 acres, Pickathon also hosts three unique beer, wine, and cider gardens. The Mountain View, Woods Stage, and Galaxy Barn Gardens will all serve a variety of either Widmer Brothers Brewing or Hopworks Urban Breweries’ finest suds, while all three will carry Evolution Red and White Wines and Wandering Aengus Ciders. Non-alcoholic beverages will include Townshend’s Tea Company , Kure Fresh Juices, and Spunky Monkey Coffee. Additionally, all three gardens will feature unique handmade bars produced from locally harvested lumber and created by collaboration between Green Hammer and Urban Timberworks.
As for food, this year’s lineup is shaping up to be as tasty as the roll call of performers!
