Pickathon, Oregon’s independent music festival highlighting the industry’s most diverse and contemporary artists, has just released its official 2016 stage schedule, in addition to adding several new acts to the lineup.
Attendees of the three-day event, which takes place Aug. 5-7 on the Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, can now expect to see Mac DeMarco, King Sunny Ade, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Joseph, RY X, Cory Henry, Promised Land Sound, Town Mountain, Myke Bogan, Blossom, Caleb Klauder & Reeb Willms, Open Mike Eagle, and Chanti Darling across the festival’s 80 acres.
This is in addition to the already-confirmed acts of Jeff Tweedy, Wolf Parade, Beach House, Yo La Tengo, Ty Segall & The Muggers, Black Mountain, The Oh Hellos, Patrick Watson, Thee Oh Sees, Alvvays, and more. The official 2016 poster features every announced act, and you can get tickets to the event through the Pickathon website.
