PDX Pop Now! is dedicated to stimulating and expanding participation in Portland music.


As an all-volunteer organization committed to being accessible, current, and local, PDX Pop Now! provides and supports live performances and recorded music throughout Portland.

Held every summer, PDX Pop Now! features performances by the best local Portland artists spanning all genres. PDX Pop Now! is all-ages and is Portland’s only free multi-genre music festival. Our 17th annual festival will take place in Summer 2019.


Our dedicated team of volunteers on the PDX Pop Now! Booking Committee regularly attends concerts in the Portland area to scout for new acts; they meet every spring to begin booking acts for the Festival. As such, PDX Pop Now! does not have a formal application process, but we do encourage artists to let us know about their music. In order to be considered to play the festival, you must reside and perform regularly in the greater Portland Metropolitan Area.

We will begin booking for the festival in early 2019. Please check back then for more information on contacting our Booking Coordinator or joining the Booking Committee.
