Kendrick Lamar, The Black Keys and Tiësto to perform at Pemberton Music Festival
When a lineup this good drops, you’ll obviously wonder if it’s simply too good to be true.
A glance at the list of artists at this year's Pemby will tell you that the festival is well-balanced in terms of genres, especially when compared to last year’s noticeably rap-heavy roster. The list also appeals to a mixed generational bag with strong representation the 90s (Jane’s Addiction, Missy Elliot, Weezer), the aughts (Bassnectar, Billy Talent, M.I.A) and the todays (Kendrick Lamar, Hozier, J. Cole).
A notable addition is the presence of Full Flex Express, a Canadian-festival-hopping party crew including Jack Ü (Skrillex and Diplo), Zeds Ded, and A$AP Ferg.
Also look out for Vancouver's own Dan Mangan & Blacksmith, local party-rockers Gay Nineties and North Vancouver-native, humble heartthrob Tobias Jesso Junior.
The official press release states:
Advance weekend General Admission tickets go on sale this Friday, April 3 at 10:00am PDT and start at just $279, plus a choice of camping or shuttle privileges for $89 or $29 for a Go Green pass - which are in limited supply.
Full ticketing details and 2015 prices, including VIP and Super VIP packages, are available at www.pembertonmusicfestival.com.
Watch Kendrick Lamar's new "King Kunta" video. (Warning: contains explicit language.)
Lamar is slotted in the list's top spot.
