Why Pickathon?

Treat yourself this summer to the Best Indie Festival in the Country. You deserve it!

Most people think they know festivals, but we promise you’ve never been to something like Pickathon, and no matter what we or anyone else says, you won’t get it unless you come.

Pickathon is a one-of-a-kind music festival that showcases upcoming artists from all music genres. The attendance is limited and camping is provided free of charge. The seven unique venues rotate to ensure natural shade, and each artist performs twice. The festival is committed to being zero-waste and focuses on mind and body wellness, with free and abundant water available.

Pickathon has a distinguished history of discovering great artists. Previous performers include Billy Strings, War on Drugs, Leon Bridges, Tyler Childers, Khruangbin, and many others. Several Pickathon bands performing this year are expected to become breakout stars and earn a place on your personal best artist list.

Pendarvis Farm covers over 80 acres of lush Pacific Northwest forests, open meadows, and rolling hills. It includes stages that are integrated into the landscape, showers, plenty of water, and well-lit trails that span over 4 miles. There are also breathtaking views of Mt. Hood.

Pickathon is more than just music; it’s an exceptional blend of music, nature, and a variety of activities, including wellness activities, comedy shows, art exhibitions, literary events, family-friendly programs, artisanal food and craft vendors, DJs, beer, spirits, and more.
