Im glad there was no foul play. One thing I found about this festival was that there was less "hippies" than Sasquatch. I think it's because of the lineup with a lot more of popular rap, rock, and electronic acts than alternative artists.
I had a blast at this fest. The only thing was the camping shit show, but we ended up parking at the house by Newfoundland and had a short, easy walk back after the fest.
Can't wait for next year.
I can't get over how amazing Sunday night was. St Vincent, Modest Mouse, Outkast, and Frank Ocean all blew my mind.

Sunday lineup scares me. Potential for Frank Ocean vs Modest Mouse. Full day lineup is out on the website.
With the news that Caribou has a new album and IS NOT touring in the Pacific Northwest, I think I HAVE to go to FYF now. Which means I have to sell my Pemberton ticket :-(. Double Snaith just can't be missed. I am le sad to miss out on this Canadian adventure.
Mac DeMarco, Justice, BANKS, Bryan Adams, Brandi Carlile all seem pretty locked in because of the website. Unless they're just fucking with us. If you put in your address bar: pembertonmusicfestival.com/lineup/arctic-monkeys (Arctic Monkeys aren't playing) there is a full list of the lineup. And there's also a link to a Waterslide waiver form. Stoked to rip up a waterslideeeee between sets..!!!
Ive been listening to a shit load of Modest Mouse and just downloaded some Rich Aucoin.
Im hoping for some more indie/alt acts added to this lineup. From their twitter/facebook feeds, it looks like they are looking for some more bands and are taking in feedback from the fans... but who the fuck knows with this festival.
