Pickathon announced a hefty chunk of their 2017 lineup at a preview party tonight at Revolution Hall, an unveiling that included performances by Y La Bamba, TYuS, Cat Hoch, 1939 Ensemble, and the Last Artful, Dodgr—all of whom will be performing at this year’s festival on August 3-6. Tonight's live presentation, hosted by Aaron Ross, was the second year in a row the Portland-area music festival has hosted an announcement party to unveil the roster of acts that will perform this summer at Pendarvis Farm.

Big names include: Dinosaur Jr. (along with a solo set from frontman J Mascis), Drive-By Truckers, Charles Bradley, Deer Tick, Swedish psych alchemists Dungen, Pickathon mainstay Ty Segall, personal faves Wolf People, and returning champ Jonathan Richman. Several other big names were announced, along with a lot of unfamiliar ones, proof of the festival's curating prowess in finding undiscovered talent.
