Pickathon Ticket Reminders
Given we're officially on the downhill slide, it's time to remind everyone that now is the time to get your tickets to this years Pickathon, August 2-4 at the famous Pendarvis Farm. That's right, in less than 100 days the gates will be swung wide open... will you be there with bells on?
Pickathon is a 'limited capacity' festival, which for this caliber of talent and setting, it's a true diamond in the ruff. The idea here is to limit the overall number of folks onsite, provide intimate performance spaces for artists and attendees, and create a comfortable and accessible experience for everyone that is there.
Currently there are only Weekend Tickets being sold, which comes with camping (if you choose) and access to three full days of music from close to 50 artists, on seven different stages (that's right, SEVEN... a new little stage is being added in 2013). All-in that's over 100 hours of live performances to choose from during your 72 hour stay! ... and that's not even including all the amazing kids camps, shows, classes, workshops, and activities. Where will you find the time?
There WILL be a very-very small amount of Single Day Tickets released ($130 each day), but these will not be available until later in June - after the completed daily stage schedule has been announced.
Our advice is to make sure you're not waiting too long.. Pickathon will sell-out in 2013, and there will only be but a few 'emergency reserve' tickets available at the gate.

So why choose Pickathon?
With so many choices to make for your upcoming summer, one needs to ask... why choose Pickathon?
This answer does not easily fit in a single paragraph (or even four paragraphs), but we'll give it our best shot to provide a few good reasons.... First of all, Pickathon is all about the music. We are a festival that does not get hung-up on big names with lots of buzz. Nor do we stay confined within any one genre. For fans that appreciate 'good and original' artists, we can safely say that Pickathon is the place for you. A music lovers paradise, an aficionados retreat. Need more convincing?... let the 2013 Lineup speak for itself.
Pendarvis Farm is an oddity in that where else can you find 80 wild and forested acres so close to a major U.S. city? Within biking distance, yet so far removed from the bustle, a visit to Pickathon will feel like you've traveled to another planet. A perfect mix of over 3.5 miles of hiking trails (all lit at night by led's) and tent camping space amongst the big trees. Pickathon is ideal for families who want to get away, without going to far... a stay-cation if you will.
Being different by design has allowed us to take huge strides in providing attention to every detail imaginable. First of all, as many of you know - Pickathon is a zero-single-use event; which means no plastic cups in the beer gardens, and no throw away dishes/utensils in the vending area. The outcome benefits us all... in the short term you see that Pickathon stays super clean with very little effort, with the long term benefit being that we help divert tons of unnecessary garbage from entering the one-way waste cycle. This years food vendor and beer/cider/wine garden menus are entering the final stages of completion, so expect that mouth watering news to be released within the next few weeks. We'll say it now, and we'll say it again later... show up hungry and thirsty as not only are our vendors the cream of the crop, but they are also super affordable.
So there you go, just a few of the many reasons why Pickathon could be the right choice for you.
Hope to see you at the farm this August as we once again celebrate our favorite weekend of the year!
Here's to turning 15,
