Portland popsters, Thank you again for such a wonderful experience at
the 2004 PDX-Pop Now! Festival. More than forty local bands lit up the
Meow Meow over three days in July, showcasing the astonishing breadth
and depth of the local music scene in Portland, Oregon. The inaugural
PDX-Pop NOW! CD compilation garnered attention beyond our wildest
expectations and has generated nationwide interest in Portland music.
We laughed...we cried...but mostly, we were blown away by the
incredible talent and creativity that we're surrounded by in this
In that spirit, we're pleased to announce...
PDX-Pop Now! 2005
Friday August 5th - Sunday August 7th @ Loveland
...Over 40 Portland Bands!
...All Ages Welcomed!
The full festival schedule will be posted here in early July. Watch this
Who are we?
We're a group of local musicians, writers, and fans from the PDX-POP
mailing list who've coalesced around the idea of organizing a free
local music festival. Our mission is to celebrate not only the bands
who've achieved "success", but also the amazing lesser-known bands
around town. PDX-Pop Now! is a local music event meant for everyone.
No matter what age you are, or what type of music you listen to, our
goal is to provide you one place to catch some of Portland's finest,
in a safe and fun atmosphere.
PDX-Pop Now! is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting music
made in Portland, Oregon. Through efforts like the PDX-Pop Now! Music
Festival and the PDX-Pop Now! compilation CDs, we strive to expand
Portland's music audience, and to enhance the sense of unity and
purpose within our community. We hope you enjoy our events and join us
in our celebration of local music. The nation has turned its ear
towards Portland, and we hope to help our diverse musical community
make a loud roar!
