Breakout Stars of Pickathon 2024: The Future of Music

Who do you think the breakout stars of Pickathon 2024 will be?

Can you believe that we are only six short weeks away from Pickathon 2024?! We couldn’t be more excited, as this year’s event promises to be our best one yet.

Picture yourself at Pickathon, where for four days your only job is to relax with friends in the scenic PNW landscape of Pendarvis Farm. You’ll enjoy better food and drink than you ever had and experience 55 incredible bands while immersing yourself in 9 mind-blowing venues that double as art installations crafted by some of the finest design-build teams in the world.

Sounds like a hard job, I know, but somebody has got to do it.

For those who have attended Pickathon before, you know that one of the most exciting things to do before you arrive is trying to guess who among our lineup will become the next breakout stars headlining festivals across America. It happens every year, and this year will be no exception.

If you have never been to Pickathon, just look back two or more years on any given lineup and let your jaw hit the floor when you realize that all of those “unknown” artists performed at one festival, and no one knew it at the time.
