The Pemberton Music Festival, which is set to take place from July 14-17, has announced its 2016 lineup.
Headlining this year’s festival will be acclaimed alt rock band Pearl Jam, who will also be appearing at Bonnaroo this summer.
Other announced artists include: J. Cole, Kaskade, Snoop Dogg, Bassnectar, Wiz Khalifa, Ice Cub, Halsey, FKA Twigs, Noel Gallagher, DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, Billy Idol, Steve Angello, Flosstradamus, Miguel, Purity Ring, Die Antwoord, Tyler The Creator, Mac Miller, Cypress Hill, Mastodon, Arkells, Wolf Parade, Cold War Kids, and more.
“We are incredibly excited to announce the lineup for 2016,” says A.J. Niland, Chairman and CXO of Huka Entertainment. “The lineup carries on our tradition of diversity and depth so there is something for everyone. We have been working hard making improvements and expanding the experience – more space, better camping, more art, and bigger production. We can’t wait to welcome the best artists and the best fans to the most beautiful festival in North America.”
A limited supply of advance GA tickets will be available this Friday, April 8 at 10:00am PT at www.pembertonmusicfestival.com
Tickets for the 2016 festival start at $295, plus a choice of either a camping pass (which accommodates up to four people) at $199 or shuttle pass (for festival patrons staying in nearby Whistler) at $99. For campers who choose to drive, parking passes are available at $29 per car. Upon purchasing their tickets, Pemberton Music Festival campers will have a choice between the energetic North Campground or the South Campground, a more relaxing area with closer parking options. The festival site is the dividing line between the two campgrounds.
Pemberton Music Festival provides a blend of on-site camping and off-site hotel lodging options. 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.
Campgrounds for 2016 will build upon the expansions that were introduced at the 2015 festival. Notable improvements this year will include streamlined entrance and exit and a brand new camping ambassador program that will help maintain and preserve the beautiful festival site. The camping ambassadors will be on-site throughout the duration of the festival and will help guide campers during load-in, hand out trash bags, and provide helpful information packets.
Other returning amenities will include specialized food offerings for VIP patrons as well as water filling stations, showers and more in the campgrounds.
Last year’s event drew more than 115,000 fans and featured nearly 120 performances by 113 artists over four days. In addition, the festival donated over $100,000 in grants to arts organizations in the Pemberton community.
