Watch a teaser for Pickathon 2014 here:
There's plenty that could be said about Pickathon: The diverse and expertly crafted lineup; the festival's pioneering ways in zero-waste food and beverage service; the celebration of Portland's food-truck culture; Seven stages creating unique environments for the performers, who all play twice over the course of the weekend; The emphasis of quality over quantity, with a 3500 paid attendance capacity; The family-friendly environment. Pickathon is the best weekend a music-lover could ask for, but wouldn't you rather see and hear it from the performers themselves?
