Thank you so much for helping us raise over $6,000 dollars through Willamette Give!Guide this year! Additionally, we were second place in the arts category for the most donors under 35, awarding us an extra $500 from the Schlesinger Family Foundation. For those that have donated, expect your incentives for pick up at the 2017 compilation party and festival.
Thanks to our generous donors, PDX Pop Now! has been able to stimulate and expand participation in Portland music since our very first festival and compilation in 2004. We are proud to be a conduit for local music and help keep the spark of accessible music alive here in the city we all love so much.
More and more people continue to search for that feeling of community that separates Portland from other big cities. PDX Pop Now! is one the reasons why Portland is different.
Our in-school music programming and workshops support hundreds of children and provide them with access to arts programming. Our annual CD compilations allow local performers to share their talent. Our free, three-day, all-ages music festival is one of the most unique in the country.
As the city has grown, our mission has stayed the same. We strive to provide everyone with the gift of music, regardless of age or income.
