Last year, indie chanteuse Feist proclaimed that Pickathon is what every other music festival only tries to be. Indeed, for 16 years the little fest, returning August 1–3, has worked to stand apart from bigger, sweatier, profit-obsessed rivals in the fast-growing industry. Pickathon caps attendance at 3,500, leaving plenty of room to roam a musical fantasyland lovingly created on a verdant 88-acre farm in Happy Valley. And then it beams those performances around the globe online. Here is a sampling of the innovative live videos the fest's team is producing, from night shoots at the Woods stage to the single-camera "On the Farm" series.
