History Of Pemberton Festival
The history of the Pemberton festival starts with Shane Bourbonnais of Live Nation, who founded and produced the Pemberton Festival in July 2008. The festival was a three day social affair. It was held in Pemberton, British Columbia and was located near a popular resort called the Whistler. The Pemberton festival was a time for people to get together and enjoy food, music and socializing. The festival featured rock, indie rock and some hip hop musicians. The performers would line up on one or two stages and perform throughout the day. Some of the popular artists who performed at the festival were Tom Petty, Jay Z, Annie Stela, Inward Eye and N.E.R.D. Live Nation cancelled both the 2009 and 2010 festival.
Location of the festival. The festival was located at the bottom of Mount Currie. Many people would gather around, sometimes bringing the whole family to enjoy the wonderful live music.
Campgrounds. People traveled from all over to hear the bands. Most set up camp close by. The camp most individuals utilized was located adjacent to the festival; so many people enjoyed the freedom of traveling back and forth.
B-Live Dance Tent. There was one tent with only one stage, sponsored by Bacardi. Most of the people at the event would try to pack inside the tent because it was filled with live entertainment, a bar, sitting areas and a large dance floor. The tent was always limited for space. Those who managed to get inside enjoyed themselves all day long.
As of now, there is no word on whether or not there will be a 2011 Pemberton Festival.
