Outdoor concerts and music festivals are notorious for producing insane amounts of waste. From single use cups and beer cans, to the stages themselves, the egregious amounts of litter that is left behind at the end of a show is appalling. Luckily, there’s one indie music festival that is taking great strides to change the concert landscape, and they have great bands too! As the only environmentally-friendly large-scale outdoor music concert, Portland’s Pickathon Music Festival combines great indie bands with eco-designs in Happy Valley, Oregon, including a reusable stage made from 520 upcycled shipping pallets, solar powered lighting, recycling and composting. But if you can’t make it up to Oregon this weekend when it kicks off, don’t fret — starting today Inhabitat will be introducing you to a whole lineup of emerging musicians at Pickathon with an exclusive live broadcast right here. Check out the video above for a sneak peek!
