Amidst the Olympic euphoria going on in the Lower Mainland I have a sad bit of information to pass along. Once again this year the Pemberton Festival has been canceled. This makes it the second year in a row, however, concert organizers Live Nation say they are working on bringing it back in 2011.
I don’t know what the issue is as the concert promoters declared the 2008 inaugural festival a success. Over 40,000 people attended the festival which featured such great acts as Jay-Z, Coldplay, Metric, N.E.R.D, Nine Inch Nails. Perhaps, Pemberton a town of couple of thousand just isn’t ready to host such a huge event. I say move it to Whistler, they are used to holding large events anyways.

All I know is I can’t wait for 2011 and hopefully the festival will be back. It was easily the best music festival in Canada.
