It’s Pickathon Saturday, meaning the festival is well underway! The campgrounds are quietly buzzing as fresh coffee is brewed over stories of yesterday’s magic. The gentle whinnies of horses are carried on the wind, the morning sun glints through the majestic firs…anything feels possible as you awake to the promise of another beautiful day of Pickathon ahead of you. Perhaps you’re planning out what you’ll see today—and let us tell you, today is jam packed with not-to-miss performances and events!
We’ve secured an overflow parking area, so drivers, fear not: we’ll have space for your vehicle! Be sure to first navigate to our main Festival Check-In area (on Hagen road directly across from the festival gates) where you’ll get your wristbands and be directed to a parking space.
Thinking about coming out but still haven’t purchased tickets? Remaining tickets are very low and we can’t guarantee there will be passes available to purchase at the gates, so we highly recommend grabbing yours now ⬇
The sun is shining and today’s weather is shaping up to be a quintessential PNW summer’s day ☀️ It’ll be pretty hot by this afternoon and into tomorrow, so take care to hydrate and dress for the heat…but we’ve got ample shaded groves and Neighborhoods to take refuge in and enjoy programming during the warmest hours!
From the mind-bending jazz of Nubya Garcia and Sons of Kemet to the electric energy of Wet Leg and GZA, the atmosphere was abuzz with excitement on Friday. We’re so happy to have everyone back and gathered here at Pendarvis Farm. Here’s a look at some beautiful moments from yesterday!
