The first-ever Pemberton Festival, will be held July 25, 26 & 27 in one of North America’s most breathtakingly beautiful settings, Pemberton, British Columbia. The festival represents the first European-style festival Live Nation has started from scratch.
There are two stages and a dance tent with more than 50 bands performing over the three day festival.
Pemberton, a two-hour drive from Vancouver, has long been a favorite winter vacation destination due to its close proximity to Whistler Resort. Complete with a festival village, camping facilities, an RV Park, tickets for the Pemberton Festival are on sale now through www.PembertonFestival.com
With artists performing with majestic snow capped mountains as their backdrop, every effort is being made to produce the festival with as little impact on the environment as possible. Hydro-electric energy will be the main power source for the festival’s energy, and the festival will promote car pooling with the incentive that cars coming in with four or more people will be able to park for free. And local Pemberton Valley farm products, which the area is well known for, will be served throughout the 360 acre festival site. A farmer’s market --where local farmers can sell their goods directly to concert-goers -- is even being planned for the site.
Concert-goers will be able to camp on site or sleep in accommodations ranging from motels to top notch luxury hotels in Whistler.
