If you’re an avid indie music fan who also has a passion for good design and sustainability, then you may want to plan your summer around the Pickathon Indie Roots Music Festival, a spectacular concert experience that happens every August in Happy Valley, Oregon. Pickathon stands alone as the only large-scale outdoor concert to combine great bands with sustainable designs, including a Treeline Stage designed by PSU students, solar powered lighting, 100% plastic-free single-use dish ware, recycling and composting, and even an EcoShuttle to and from public transportation hubs. The best part? Starting in February, Inhabitat will be bringing you exclusive behind the scenes videos each month documenting the construction of the incredible, organic stage designs at Pickathon as we count down to the August concert! Stay tuned on February 19, 2015 when we debut our first video, and be sure to check out Pickathon.com for a list of exclusive video channels featuring a fantastic lineup of bands.
