Taking place Friday, July 18 through to Sunday, July 20, 2014, Pemberton Music Festival is a three-day contemporary music festival in British Columbia's scenic Pemberton Valley, near the foot of majestic Mt. Currie. Produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment, in collaboration with the Village of Pemberton and land partners the Sunstone Group and the Lil'wat Nation, the festival will turn Pemberton Valley, located less than thirty minutes from Whistler, BC, into a premiere musical playground on par with HUKA's other award-winning festivals.
Pemberton Music Festival will provide a blend of on-site camping and off-site hotel lodging options, provided by lodging and activities partners Whistler Blackcomb and Tourism Whistler. While camping options will allow attendees to stay directly on festival grounds, those seeking the comforts of a home away from home can secure traditional lodging in nearby Whistler, BC. Non-camping patrons will have access to festival-supplied transportation, including shuttles from Whistler.
Pemberton Music Festival is also proud to welcome its partners Molson Canadian, SiriusXM Canada, and Somersby Cider to its 2014 event.
