Pemberton Recap-Part 1

I'm still too tired, exhausted and busy with piled up work to even start to do the real recap post of Pemberton Musicfest other than to say it was a fantastic, disgusting, dirty, exhausting, tiring, and euphoric weekend and I have so many stories to come. My camera is still mid developing so for now I'm just gonna post some generic shots I grabbed off the newspaper websites.







This is people starting to fill the field for Metric on Friday. Dusty, with a gorgeous background of the mountains!






A shot of the crowd from the stage at night (note this is one of the four main stages)




The Bacardi B151 Tent, which was pitch black all day long and made you feel like you weren't in a festival complete with 4 full bars with rain showers behind, 6 beds to lay on, many loungers in the sun, 2 vip stages with couches and more.






The Tragically Hip-Best Canadian Band Ever.






He may not have come back to my tent for some love making, but he did sing a song about wanting to Fuck Me Like an Animal.





Hizzo and I are tight after P-fest. He gave us a shout out. We gave him a shout out. You know how it goes.



Rock. God.

I don't want to alarm anyone but I think Tom may have been "on the pot".

That's it for now, but a full recap to come soon...

I'm glad Tom Petty can still rock it!

Can't wait to read more. I'm going to Lollapalooza this weekend so I'll have music festival stories too!

Is it wrong that, despite all the pictures of the bright shiny lights and the rock stars, the thing I noticed most about this post is the state of your camera?

Developing? As in, film?

Whoa. Old school.

Tom always was a strange one so it's usually hard to tell. They had a home not too far from where we live and I used to see his (divorced now) wife rollerblading around the neighborhood streets on occasion. She seemed a lot more down to earth and rooted in reality than he did. I guess it's just the musician mind.

Oh wow! What awesome pictures! I'm glad you had a great time - now go and luxuriate in the shower for four and a half hours.

Nothing beats getting down and dirty (literally) with a thousand other people to make us feel truely human. "Burning Man" did that for me last year.

Tom Petty SINGS like he's "on the pot."

Am I the only one around these parts WITHOUT hearing damage?

Angela said...

HOW FUN! I'm glad you had a great time. It sounds like it should have been a blast!

Looks like it was a good time. That doesn't even look like Trent Reznor in the picture.

Paula said...

Looks like there was waaaayyy too many people there for my liking - I'd probably have pounded someone!

Mike said...

Hypothetically speaking, if you had to pee in a cup would you hire someone to do it for you?

Kelsey said...

I'd be very keen to see Tom Petty, on pot or not.

Jenny said...

I look forward to hear the recap! =D Wow, I see there were loads of people, but I guess music festivals always are over-filled.
