  • This is what Pickathon looks like RIGHT NOW.
Pickathon is right around the corner. For lots more about the incredible fest, and our picks for the jam-packed event—which takes place this weekend at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley—pick up today's Portland Mercury newspaper.

If you can't go, stop crying. (Baby.) For the past few years, Pickathon has offered a livestream of live highlights, this year is no different. The stream, which you'll be able to view on, is co-hosted by Livestream and KEXP, and today they announced the schedule for this weekend's stream. Now you won't have to worry about missing Unknown Mortal Orchestra's late night barn set, or checking out the Men on one of the two main stages, or Ages and Ages bidding good night from the Starlight Stage.

For an idea of what the livestream is like (the audio and video quality is excellent), here's an exclusive premiere of Lightning Dust performing "Never Again" on the Woods Stage at last year's Pickathon. It's haunting, trippy (that setting is just otherworldly), and beautiful.

The complete broadcast schedule's posted on Pickathon's site.

Meanwhile, if you ARE going to Pickathon, you'll need to act. Today's the last day they're selling pre-sale tickets online. Starting at midnight, they'll only be selling limited walk-up tickets at the gate for single days and the full weekend. Here's the ticket link. See you there.
