If you’re Pendarvis Farm-bound this weekend for the annual hoe-down and hullabaloo that is Pickathon, are you havng a hard time deciding which acts to add to your personal schedule? Or, is there a chance you have failed to bag tickets to one of the summer’s funnest fests, and are wondering what you’ll be missing?
Either way, we’ve put together a Pickathon playlist (see below) for your week-long soundtrack in the run-up to the boot stompin’ weekend. Over 18 hours of music from those on this year’s lineup, all for your listening pleasure.
From the old-school soul of Leon Bridges to the garage rock of Heartless Bastards, via some Portland punk (hello Summer Cannibals!) and West African guitar riffs (hat tip Tinariwen), we’ve amassed a playlist as eclectic and mildly chaotic as the festival itself, and hopefully just as fun.
That’s 271 tunes, people. Happy listening!
