Summer in Portland means music under the sun and stars. The annual Waterfront Blues Festival (July 2–5) coincides with Independence Day festivities; Buddy Guy, Gregg Allman and Galactic with Macy Gray will headline this year in the natural amphitheater of Tom McCall Waterfront Park. After last year’s wildly successful debut, Project Pabst (July 17–19) returns with Blondie, Weezer, Passion Pit, TV On The Radio, The Buzzcocks and others at Zidell Yards in the South Waterfront District and at clubs around town. PDX Pop Now! (July 24–26) gathers local artists for an all-ages music festival — complete with food carts, a street fair and Rigsketball — under the east end of the Hawthorne Bridge.

The 16th annual Pickathon (July 31–Aug. 2) returns to Pendarvis Farm in nearby Happy Valley, where performances in the woods and barns entertain music-lovers and family-friendly camping is available throughout the premises; the lineup includes Summer Cannibals, Cloud Nothings, Ty Segall, The Turnpike Troubadours and Heartless Bastards, among others. MusicFestNW (Aug. 21–23) offers another powerhouse lineup of Foster the People, Beirut, Modest Mouse, Belle and Sebastian, and more at Waterfront Park.

The Oregon Zoo attracts national acts to its summer concert series — including the likes of Chicago, The B-52s and Indigo Girls — as does McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, where the Doobie Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson with Alison Krauss & Union Station, Lyle Lovett and The Decemberists are a small sampling of talent gracing the historic property’s concert lawns.
