Pemberton Festival to make Pemberton cool for a few days

Doesn’t It Make You Feel Better…, originally uploaded by Nicola T.

From the CBC [cbc]:

…the inaugural festival will feature a host of headliners that include Coldplay, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Jay-Z and Nine Inch Nails.

Canadians slated to take part include The Tragically Hip, Sam Roberts Band, Metric, Buck 65, MSTRKRFT and Wintersleep.

The bill will also feature many newer and emerging acts, including Death Cab for Cutie, Interpol, The Flaming Lips, Vampire Weekend, MGMT and The Airborne Toxic Event.

Excuse me? I believe I can hear my mind melting inside my head. Typcially we’ve always had to travel if we’ve wanted to see a decent music festival. EdgeFest was fun though it generally focused on one big band and a number of smaller acts. For example do you remember Econoline Crush? I do because I saw them at EdgeFest.

Having said that a concert on this level rarely happens in Canada, and when it does it’s generally in Barrie Ontario. So this is somewhat massive. The acts are wide ranging enough that there’s nearly something for everyone.

Tickets will be onsale, and probably sold out, on March 28th.  The festival will run from July 25th to the 27th.  More information can be found at the festival’s website [pmf].
