Pickathon’s Initial 2019 Lineup Features Nathaniel Rateliff, Lambchop, Lucius and Sam Evian
By Ellen Johnson
Pickathon, Portland’s annual festival celebrating the best of guitar music, bluegrass, folk, acoustic, rock and everything in-between, have announced their 2019 lineup. Some of the big names include Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Mandolin Orange, Lucius, Mountain Man and Tyler Childers, but the roster isn’t just home to country, folk and acoustic sounds: Also among the 50 or so names are enlightened surf-jammers Khruangbin, experimental rocker Lampchop, post-pop enchantress Miya Folick, New Zealand guitar pros The Beths and D.C. punk favorites Flasher. It would seem this year’s lineup truly has something for everyone.
The lineup was officially announced last night with a kickoff party in Portland. Between now and August, Pickathon will host a series of “Pickathon Present” sessions featuring Mandolin Orange, Amyl and The Sniffers and more. More on that here.
Again, you can check out the whole lineup below. Pickathon is Aug. 2-4 2019 in Happy Valley, Oregon, just outside Portland. For more information (including tickets, and an FAQ to help you have a better time at the festival than everyone on that one Portlandia
