Pickathon Announces 2019 Lineup


Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Khruangbin and Mandolin Orange are among the acts on the 2019 Pickathon music festival lineup. The annual event returns to Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon on August 2 – 4.

According to the announcement, Pickathon first-timer Nathaniel Rateliff will “be bringing two different bands,” which includes the aforementioned headlining set with The Night Sweats. Additionally confirmed Pickathon 2019 performers were Tyler Childers, Lucius, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Fruit Bats, Mountain Man, Caamp, YOB, Damien Jurado, Lambchop, Laura Veirs, Bonny Light Horseman, Mdou Moctar, Courtney Marie Andrews and several others.

“Our secret is that we continue to double down on choices that only make sense when your primary focus is to make the best experience possible, even when it sometimes conflicts with maximizing profits,” said Pickathon founder Zale Schoenborn. “We made a conscious choice some years back to limit our attendance to favor the comfort of our attendees over finding new ways to maximize how many people we can jam into Pendarvis Farm. Entering our 21st year, Pickathon remains inspired to innovate new ways to create the best festival experience.”
