Jim Beckmann

This morning, Pickathon announced its 2016 lineup, and it's a doozy! Wilco's Jeff Tweedy headlines along with Yo La Tengo, Beach House, and Ty Segall & The Muggers, plus so many other KEXP favorites - like Black Mountain, Thee Oh Sees, Dan Deacon, Ibeyi, Fruit Bats, My Bubba, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Julia Holter... the list just keeps going! Plus, year after year, we discover so many new bands not yet on our playlists, so we can only imagine what else is in store.

Tickets for the 18th annual Pickathon, held on August 5th-7th at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, OR, are on sale here. Get 'em now, and if this lineup isn't enough to get you going, check out the these great photos by Kristina Moravec of this one of kind, down-home hoedown:
