The inaugural Pemberton Festival, a huge show 30 minutes north of Whistler, BC, goes on sale Friday.

The bill has impressive headliners: Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails, Jay-Z, Tom Petty, Death Cab for Cutie and the Flaming Lips, to name my favorites. For a Snohomish County resident, the three-day festival could rival Sasquatch, which is closer but still a drive.

Along with that show, tickets for Dave Matthews Band and She Wants Revenge are set to go on sale.

Here’s a glance at those shows and more. I’ll update this as I learn of other shows. Ticket prices don’t include random service charges, parking fees, etc.

  • Pemberton Festival at the Pemberton Festival Grounds, Pemberton, BC, $239.50 Canadian, which converts almost equally to about $236 US. This is an early bird sale for three-day passes. Tickets likely will increase in price after supplies sell out. Tickets for the July 25-27 festival on sale Friday.
