Pickathon 2013 Nearing the 30 Day Countdown! Announces Collaboration with CASH Music and Releases the Final Batch of Weekend and Single Day Tickets


Pickathon and CASH Music are excited to announce a collaboration on a new feature being added to the CASH Music platform. This feature will allow easy automated payment splits for all commerce offerings and will also parse data from other online sales platforms. Both organizations believe that enabling these automated payment splits will empower artists and labels with the flexibility to innovate and build new and exciting business models around their online commerce.

Pickathon is a forward thinking music festival and content provider that is reshaping people's expectations of what a festival experience can and should be. Pickathon's audience is invested year-round in what Pickathon stands for in relation to music, sustainability, food, design, and culture.

CASH Music is a nonprofit organization based in Portland, OR that is focused on artist sustainability. CASH is building an open source platform of free tools, an educational curriculum for artists, and are working on facilitating an on going conversation between musicians and technologists for a more sustainable future.

These similarly focused and forward thinking Portland-based organizations were destined to cross paths. Pickathon approached CASH Music about the idea of automating and visualizing complex payments just as CASH were beginning a deeper focus on developing the commerce components of their platform. It was perfect timing all around.

This collaboration announcement comes just prior to the upcoming CASH Music Summit, which will host two days (August 1st and September 5th), plus a month of online conversations, between artists, industry, and tech folks, anchored around Pickathon and MFNW respectively.
