After selling out of early Weekend Tickets much faster than expected, we are pleased to report that all remaining Weekend Tickets are once again on sale Here's the link to buy them.

The festival takes place the weekend of August 5-7 at Pendarvis Farm near Portland, Ore.

Each artist plays at least two sets spread out across 3 days on 6 unique performance spaces. Ranging from a stage you hike to in the woods, a rocking late night stage in the Galaxy Barn, an acoustic workshop barn (where the Decemberists recorded their latest album), a late night outdoor intimate stage under the stars, and two primary stages located under one of the world's largest temporary tension fabric structures, that are equal parts art and function.

What you get: Gorgeous forested camping, miles of hiking trails, 100% plastic free (yes, even Beer Cups), Late Night Shows, Workshops, Family Friendly, the list goes on and on... Tickets, Lineup, News, Video, Music, and Info all at
