Pemberton Music Festival, aka the best weekend of your life. July 14th-17th couldn’t come any sooner! Anticipation has been building for the release of the 2016 line up and I don’t think we’ll have to wait much longer.

With the 2015 lineup consisting of hit-makers Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Hozier and let’s not forget Missy Elliott, we are sure in for even a killer line up this year. Some of my predictions for this year with Squamish Fest unfortunately being cancelled is Drake, Mumford & Sons, Rihanna maybe even the Weeknd.

For the last 2 years I’ve been lucky enough to be able to attend Pemberton Music Festival. 2014 being my first ever music festival. It was interesting to say the least. The camping unfortunately hasn’t gotten any better, but by the looks of it this year when buying your ticket you will buy for a particular area of camping rather than the free for all that it has been.

Some the essentials I believe you MUST have at any music festival, especially Pemberton Music Festival would be BABY WIPES. No joke. You think I’m joking, but you will get really dirty from walking around and you won’t want to wait in the long lines for the showers cause you’re drained from being out in the sun all day.

Long socks. You’re probably thinking…why long socks?! Well unfortunately in the camping area the ground is covered in brown sawdust and ends up getting in your ankle socks and your shoes.

A fanny pack. Yes. That bag your parents used to wear when you were a child. It definitely came in handy for me because it allowed me to carry around my GoPro, cash and ID and any extras I needed.

Lastly, a stylish hat. This is usually a given, but I unfortunately made the mistake last year in the hottest month and also during the BC drought to forget one. Let’s just say I looked like a tomato by the end of the weekend. On the plus side, I ended up buying a hat from the merch table that has come in handy since then.
