Portland, Oregon, music festival Pickathon has unveiled plans for an all-access steaming pass that will give fans the ability to watch the four-day event remotely. The more than 20-year-old festival will return to Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley from Aug. 1-4.

The Oregon festival promises an experienced film crew of more than 600 people will work to stream all four stages of the event with more than 60 artists performing. Fans who miss any of the live action can replay the content from previous days until Monday (Aug. 5).

The Pickathon All-Access Pass will include everything from roots artist Tyler Childers dropping his album live on Friday (Aug. 2) to Nigerian dream-band Ibibio Sound Machine closing out the festival on Sunday (Aug. 4) on the Galaxy Barn stage.

On Thursday (Aug. 1), founding Grateful Dead member Phil Lesh will perform on Jerry Garcia’s birthday for a two-hour set as Phil Lesh & the Terrapin Family Band. Lesh will take the stage a second time on Saturday (Aug. 3) for a three-hour set on the fabled Woods Stage from 9 p.m. to midnight. 

This year’s lineup for the multi-genre festival also includes Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Mandolin Orange, Mountain Men, Lucius, Fruit Bats, Preservation Hall Band, Laura Veirs and more.

The live streaming experience will be powered by FITE, the leading digital platform, offering more than 1,000 events per year to a global audience. Early Bird Pricing (until the end of the day, July 31) is $19.99 for the full weekend (Thurs-Sun). After July 31, the pricing is $29.99 for the full weekend. Purchase and tune-in here
