A diverse trend setting lineup unfolds across six unique performance venues that feel more like alternate reality musical rides than stages. Pickathon makes a range of choices that sets it apart from today’s mainstream festival culture; purposely maintaining a low crowd density, enabling families to thrive, recruiting the finest food and drink purveyors in Oregon, free and abundant water, eliminating plastic and minimizing single-use items, no sponsor vinyl banners, and an unrelenting focus on eliminating festival hassles in general.
“It’s what other music festivals claim to be — an experience. The lineup is always stacked and is as diverse as the stages — which is some statement considering the three stages Pickathon hosts are among the most unique I’ve seen.” – Noisey
“Pickathon is an admirably decentered, medium-size festival with an emphasis on communal, progressive values – from the bands, which all play twice, a welcome festival rarity (and some of which camp out, too), to the sustainability-minded dining options, to the quirks particular to the earthy Pacific Northwest.” – The New York Times
“The festival goes to great lengths to create a unique environment for attendees, from operating without corporate sponsors to creating seven distinctive performance venues to host Pickathon’s rock and folk-inclined lineup.” – USA TODAY
“The festival brings an impressive roster of indie talent to Pendarvis Farm for a relatively intimate event. The festival offers a more family-friendly vibe, including an entire schedule of events for kids, and food trucks that rival any food festival (or festival food) options.” – Time
“This may be hard to believe, but it’s an annual festival whose 3500 attendees contribute almost nothing to area landfills.” – Billboard
“Pickathon’s ethics work in conjunction with these stunning aesthetics. The Pendarvis family and organizers’ unparalleled commitment to sustainability distinguishes them from every other music festival in the world.” – Paste Magazine

The future of funk is clear on The Motet’s new self-released studio album, Totem, which hits streets July 8, 2016. The 12 tracks on Totem, all originals, cover a lot of ground stylistically while never losing sight of the groove. Produced by Lettuce and Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno, Totem was written collectively by the seven members of the band. Each song is steeped in The Motet’s signature style that slaps you in the face with sounds that are fresh and unique.
MCTUFF Trio feat Andy Coe and Tarik Abouzied
“Hammond organist, Joe Doria brings together some of the best of the NW music scene to create a powerful and jaw-dropping funk and jazz sound like you’ve never heard, exhibiting a mix of stellar musicianship, seasoned songwriting and deep groove where no musical stone gets unturned. McTuff is a movin’ and groovin’ adventure that you will not soon forget. McTuff began in 2008 as an ode to jazz organ greats Jimmy Smith and Captain Jack McDuff, and has since evolved into a versatile and exciting group that has performed across the nation”.
