Pickathon 2011 Lineup Led By Mavis Staples, The Sadies, Bill Callahan, Many More

Taking place the weekend of Aug. 5-7 at Pendarvis Farm near Portland, Ore., Pickathon Festival showcases the best in indie-roots music. Pickathon prides itself on providing the “best festival experience in the country.” This includes a 100% plastic free environment, workshops and a schedule where every artists plays at least two sets over three days across six unique performance spaces. This includes a stage that must be hiked to through the woods, an intimate open air late night stage, the workshop barn where The Decemberists recorded their recent album, and a large pavilion that is “equal parts art and function.” Speaking of The Decemberists, Chris Funk presented us with a list of his favorite moments from last year’s Pickathon. Not bad, right?
