Pickathon 2013: Shabazz Palaces, Sharon van Etten & So Much More
Pickathon just might be the best music festival in the United States. After my introduction to the idyllic, smoothly run, hot as hell festival last year, I have been counting down the days till our return to Pendarvis Farm. And today, we get the first glimpse into who we’ll be hiking into the woods to see during Pickathon’s 15th anniversary on August 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
Balancing big names from blog buzz bands to bluegrass, Pickathon offers a diverse line-up unlike any other major music festival. This year’s big name headliners are Feist and Andrew Bird, bands I’m excited to see for certain, but I’ll be going for the rest of the line-up: Sharon Van Etten, Shabazz Palaces, Pure Bathing Culture, Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside, Parquet Courts, Kurt Vile & the Violators, Divine Fits …. just to name a few.
Tickets go on sale today, and if you’re looking to drop big bucks on a festival or try out a new one, I can’t recommend Pickathon highly enough. See you at Pendarvis!
