Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Heartless Bastards, Billy Joe Shaver to Play Pickathon 2010


Hey, guys, did you hear? The big festival is getting announced today! What? No, not that festival. Pickathon!

Teasing about unfortunately-timed announcements aside, this summer, indie-roots music festival Pickathon turns 12, and they’ve just released a (partial) line-up of the musicians who will help celebrate their dozenth year. It’s quite good, too. Held at Pendarvis Farm just outside of Portland, Pickathon performances are spread across five “stages” (some are in barns, some are out in the open) during the weekend of Aug. 6-8. Here are the confirmed performers, and you can keep an eye on Pickathon’s site as they add more in coming months:
