So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
The 2009 Pemberton Festival has been cancelled which can’t come as a surprise to anyone. Pemberton seemed like fun, and I considered going but I could smell those traffic problems—and my accompanying frustration—coming from a mile away (not to mention the other logistical challenges.) 40,000 people taking a two lane highway to a village with a population barely over 2,000 was a sure recipe for failure.
Weekend festivals in remote locations that place prohibitive restrictions on what you’re allowed to bring in have a way of not going very well too. Attendees weren’t even able to bring bottled water in from outside: everything had to be bought on site.
Still, a great concept poorly executed. We’ll see if it comes back for 2010, as part of British Columbia’s post-Olympic hangover.
