When: July 31st-August 2nd

Where: Happy Valley, Oregon

Why Go: If you're looking for a side of sustainability with your music festival experience, Oregon's Pickathon is the place for you. Having eliminated plastic and single-use items like cups and utensils, Pickathon is so environmentally conscious that it invites attendees to bring their own dishware and make use of free water and sinks. The lineup is not too shabby either, offering a diverse range of artists across its three-day weekend.

Must-See Acts: Ex Hex, Shabazz Places, Ty Segall, Viet Cong, Thundercat, Sinkane, Sam Cohen, King Tuff, Jessica Pratt, Cloud Nothings, Heartless Bastards, Tune-Yards, Leon Bridges, Whitey Morgan, Happyness
