Calling all indie music fans! Oregon's Pickathon Indie Roots Music Festival is coming to life this August, and we've got your inside look at the awe-inspiring, sustainably crafted stage designs which make this interactive festival a one of a kind experience.
How do you design an outdoor music festival which leaves no trace? That was the goal of Pickathon founder Zale Schoenborn when he and his team envisioned an eco roots music festival in the outskirts of Portland Oregon. Since it was launched in 1999, Pickathon Music Festival has been the only waste-free and plastic-free outdoor music festival in the US, featuring solar-powered structures and an outdoor stage designed to be dismantled and recycled at the end of the concert. When students from Portland State University were tasked with designing a recyclable stage for the 2014 concert, they rose to the challenge with an incredible structure built entirely out of recycled shipping pallets. Check out this exclusive behind-the-scenes video that documents the development of this portable stage, which will help to ensure that the wild concert experience will leave no trace on the surrounding environment.
