PEMBERTON, B.C. (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — New Pemberton promoter HUKA Entertainment has announced the onsale date for the 'early bird' tickets for the revived Pemberton festival set for next year.
The first round of tickets will go onsale on this Friday, November 22 at 10:00am PST with a portion of the proceeds from these sales going to the Movember Foundation, an organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's mental health initiatives.
"We're thrilled to be a charitable partner with Pemberton and can't wait to experience this festival," commented Pete Bombaci, Country Director of Movember Canada. "There are few things more Canadian than mountains and moustaches, our thanks to Pemberton Music Festival for helping people do good while they have fun."
The revived Pemberton Music Festival, which is scheduled to take place from July 18 to July 20, 2014, is billed as a contemporary music festival but has yet to reveal a lineup, which is perhaps a bold move for the inaguaral edition of a festival.
The first Pemberton festival was staged in 2008 by Live Nation, but the promoter backed out of the event in 2009 and pulled the plug permanently in 2010. Huka, the festival's new promoter has experience with festivals and co-produces BUKU Music + Art Project in Louisiana and is the co-founder, producer, talent buyer and co-promoter of the award-winning Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, AL. – Staff Writers
