New Content Pemberton Festival Canceled, Operators Declare Bankruptcy

Weeks after revealing its 2017 lineup, the Pemberton Music Festival has been canceled and its organizers have filed for bankruptcy.

The event had been scheduled to take place from July 13-16, and up until 3 p.m. on Thursday, tickets were still for sale on the Pemberton Festival website.

As Brooklyn Vegan reports, up until 18 May (local time) tickets were available to Pemberton Music Festival, but with rumours rampant of its imminent cancellation, ticket-holders started contacting organisers for more information.

The organizers have filed for bankruptcy protection and the accounting firm Ernst and Young has been named Trustee. If you purchased a ticket with a credit card, you may be able to file a chargeback request by contacting your bank or credit card issuer.

The Senior Vice President for Ernest & Young says he knew the festival would be filing for bankruptcy earlier this week, but tickets were for sale on the festival's website until Thursday afternoon.

For the past four years Huka Entertainment has worked to create a one-of-a-kind experience in the most handsome place on earth.

"The Pemberton Music Festival has been significantly impacted since 2015 by a weakening Canadian dollar relative to the USA dollar as many of its entertainment costs are denominated in $US dollars". He received word of the cancellation Wednesday night.

"They had no faith that any suppliers in Canada could do a decent job", he said. The two tickets were about $700, and camping and parking came to about $300. "I wish they would have just organized it better". It drew 180,000 people to the B.C. village past year. Headliners this year included Chance the Rapper, Muse, Diplo, Big Sean, Alesso, and A Tribe Called Quest, among others.

Way Home Festival is headlined by Flume, Imagine Dragons, Frank Ocean and Justice and runs from July 28-30.

In the current overstuffed and saturated music-festival environment, not everything is going to make it. General admission tickets were priced at $369, while VIP tickets cost $899 and Super VIP ran upwards of $1,799. Founded in 2010, it brought major acts to the Squamish Valley including Drake, Weezer, Metric, Bad Religion, The Tragically Hip, Eminem and Bruno Mars.
