Ostensibly a music festival outside Portland, Oregon, Pickathon’s built a reputation over the past twenty years for groundbreaking programming, sustainable ethics, and now, next level content creation. Pickathon sees the festival ecosystem as a system of cultural curators; custodians of place and history, community incubators. That’s why Pickathon looks so different from other festivals: they have a larger vision than their bottom line and they have the unhinged level of ambition needed to create something totally different. They record each stage, but they do so with stunning high-definition video, a team of 600 people, camera cranes and drones, and then turn out 200+ videos in a series of videos that stretches nearly a year. They stream the festival, but that stream includes mini-documentaries, skits, and special interviews that are cut in live.
