Pemberton is a shredder’s paradise. 30 kilometres north of Whistler and framed by iconic backcountry areas like Miller Creek and the Duffy Lake Road, the village of 2, 500 is home to more shreds who get more pow than us than we care to admit. But as the changing seasons make us think of summer, Pemberton is already shifting gears and getting ready for its biggest party of the year, the Pemberton Music Festival. Recent years have seen Pemby feature the likes of The Flaming Lips, Kurt Vile, and Ludacris, and with today’s announcement of the 2016 lineup it’s clear that the organizers are keeping to a tradition of big names supported by niche artists who push past the idea that music should be seen in categories. We’re stoked to see White Denim, the Funk Hunters, and Method Man & Redman in the mix, and we’re already scheming on flowing a summer rip on Blackcomb to the fest. Check the line up and the details below:
