Tall Tree offers hope to Pemberton ticket holders

Tall Tree Festival offers exchange ticket for fans with cancelled Pemberton tickets.

Port Renfrew’s Tall Tree Festival is offering fans holding tickets for the cancelled Pemberton Festival a chance to salvage their summer.

Last week, it was announced that organizers behind the Pemberton Music Festival had gone into bankruptcy. An official statement said there were no automatic refunds for ticket holders, who may have to wait weeks to learn whether they will get their money back.

The Tall Tree Festival announced Wednesday that it would honour Pemberton Festival tickets.

“Tall Tree believes strongly in the bringing together of people and music to celebrate life on the West Coast,” said Emmalee Brunt, communications manager for the festival.

“Following the news of Pemberton’s cancellation, notably that ticket holders would not receive a refund, festival organizers decided to offer a ticket-for-ticket exchange to provide those who suddenly found themselves out of pocket and without a festival experience this summer.”

The Tall Tree Festival is held June 23 to 26 on top of Browns Mountain in Port Renfrew, about two hours from Victoria.

This is the eighth edition of the popular festival, which this year will feature more than 70 acts performing a range of music from indie rock to reggaeton to EDM.

Those wishing to redeem Pemberton Festival tickets for Tall Tree tickets can find details at talltreemusicfestival.com. The ticket exchange does not include camping or early access.

Pemberton Festival would have taken place July 13 to 16.
