5 Under-the-Radar Summer Music Festivals

Are massive, mainstream music fests not really your thing? Then check out these lower-key alternatives from across the country, which offer solid lineups on a much smaller scale.

August 2-4 near Portland, Oregon

The 80-acre Pendarvis Farm, just 15 minutes from downtown Portland, is home to one of the tiniest festivals on our list, which—with its remote setting and 3,500-attendee cap—aims to eliminate typical festival hassles. Focus instead on getting your fill of local Oregon beer, cider and wine without missing a beat—artists play at least twice during the weekend.

Lineup Highlights: Andrew Bird, Divine Fits, Feist, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Sharon Van Etten, The Devil Makes Three.

Tickets available at Pickathon.com.
