Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats will join Khruangbin, Mandolin Orange and country singer Tyler Childers in headlining the typically diverse bill for the 21st annual Pickathon festival, set for Aug. 2-4 near Portland, Oregon. The 50-act bill also includes Lamb Chop , Lucius , Laura Veirs , Fruit Bats , Cedric Burnside , the Preservation Hall Jazz Band , Canadian Polaris Prize winner Lido Pimienta and more. The acts will perform at six stages set up on the grounds of the Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Ore., where Pickathon drew 3,500 paid patrons last year -- a far cry from the 90 or so that founder and executive director Zale Shoenborn estimates came to the inaugural festival in 1999.
