Pickathon festival is returning to Portland with another year of off-beat, folk-centric acts, and the group has just announced the lineup for this summer’s festival. Where past lineups have included big names like Jeff Tweedy, Yo La Tengo, and Beach House, this year’s bill includes a variety of smaller names from acts sure to be household names soon. Headlining acts include Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Khruangbin, and Mandolin Orange, as well as another set from Rateliff with a separate backing band. A variety of notable, mid-sized acts dominate the lineup’s middle tiers including Flasher, Lambchop, Damien Jurado, Mdou Moctar, Miya Folick, Mountain Man, Young Jesus, Sneaks, Nap Eyes, and more.
