Yeah… Pemberton sounds like some small English town that might house a Castle made entirely out of Mentos.. but, it sure ain’t.. it’s a little redneck town just outside of Whistler, British Columbia and it plans to be the future site of a very very cool Canadian Music Festival.

So if you’re like me, you’ve likely gotten far too accustomed to migrating 1000s of miles across the continent to catch acts you’d never see in Alberta, Canada. So… let Pemberton cut down your travel time by a couple days (though that might cut the fun in half too–if you’re a lover of the road trip).

The 2008 Pemberton Music Festival includes these amazing acts:

Coldplay, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Nine Inch Nails, Jay-Z, Flaming Lips, Interpol, Death Cab For Cutie, The Tragically Hip, Serj Tankian, My Morning Jacket, Metric, Sam Roberts Band, Vampire Weekend, Black Mountain, Minus The Bear, Wintersleep, Buck 65, Secret Machines, MGMT, Brazillian Girls, SIA, Fiery Furnaces, Mates of State, The Airborne Toxic Event, Carolina Liar, Grand Ole Party, Monte Negro, Low Vs Diamond, Annie Stela, The Crystal Method, DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist, Junkie XL, David Seaman, Booka Shade, MSTRKRFT, M.A.N.D.Y., Tommie Sunshine, Chromeo, Deadmau5, 3 OH! 3, Kevin Shiu, Timeline, Tony Pantages

The Festival is set for July 25-27 in Pemberton, B.C

Tickets go on sale Friday March 28th and can be found HERE!

And talk about the perfect place to have a concert, this place looks like a magical fairy land!!

I can finally breathe a huge sigh of relief today, the All Points West Festival Lineup has been announced… and, it looks pretty damn good.


APW is to be hosted by Goldenvoice/AEG Live and Liberty Events. And get this, it’s gonna be a GREEN event too!! All the better! This includes carpooling, ample transportation to and from the site as well as all day Ferry service. Sounds damn classy, I’m telling you!
And, coming all the way from Canada, it’s ALWAYS in ones best interest to carpool; the gas costs will screw you every time!

Tickets for this three-day, multi-stage festival go on sale Feb 29th through Ticketmaster.
The ALL POINTS WEST MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL LINE-UP (as of 2/21) is as follows: Radiohead, Jack Johnson, Underworld, Kings of Leon, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Cat Power, The Roots, The New Pornographers, Youssou N’Dour, Animal Collective, Andrew Bird, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Metric, CSS, Girl Talk, Chromeo, The Go! Team, Amadou & Mariam, The Black Angels, Sia, The Felice Brothers, K’Naan, Jason Isbell, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Alberta Cross, The Virgins, Black Kids, Mates of State, Duffy, Forro in the Dark, Nicole Atkins, Juana Molina, Little Brother, Rogue Wave, Neil Halstead and Your Vegas.


There are 40 acts scheduled in total, so the above list is just a sneak-peak. Not to mention, Radiohead is headlining both Friday and Saturday night! Thats the money’s worth right there!!

SOLD!
