Pickathon Returns to Pendarvis Farm August 1-3

Vortex Music Magazine

Stay tuned to the Pickathon 2014 Announcement-A-Thon as the fest rolls out its lineup over the next 16 days.

For the 16th annual edition, the forested, suburban, eco-conscious and beloved fest like no other plans to reveal its lineup over the course of the next 16 days.

Unveiling just three bands so far—Foxygen, X and Valerie June—Pickathon organizers will continue to announce three or four acts each day. And after only three days of revelations, tickets will go on sale on Saturday, March 1, so if the lineup thus far sounds even the slightest bit appealing, scoop up your tickets because the fest tops out at just 3,500 people.

We'll roll up our sleeves and keep score here alongside our new keyboard-toting, hawk-eyed friend, which you can catch a glimpse of in the 2014 teaser below. Speaking of which, do we sense the triumphant return of Portland's Ages and Ages to Happy Valley this year? The vid features none other than the track "I See More" from their new record Divisionary, which Vortex got deep on with lead singer Tim Perry.

UPDATE 3/2/14: And the prediction pays off: Ages and Ages will return to Pendarvis Farm this year!
