Using the same system as when I made a mock schedule just after the lineups were released, I've updated for what now seems to be a pretty final schedule. I took Saturday's schedule from last year and applied it to every day. If anybody wants to edit it to make it look nicer and repost, feel free.
Conflicts for me include Foals/Phantogram, De La Soul/Liars, Neko Case/Deafheaven, First Aid Kit/The Dodos, Elbow/Demetri Martin, and chune-Yards/The Lonely Forest.
If you can't tell, I'm too excited that Sasquatch is next month.
And whadya know, they were added to the Bigfoot on Sunday, so there are 9 acts of the Bigfoot all 3 days, and Major Lazer definitely will be a late night set. I just need to learn to wait a few hours before I speculate.
There are now 8 acts on the main stage, Bigfoot, and Yeti each day. I doubt we'll see any more additions (barring a cancellation).
My post is wrong.
There are 9 acts on the Bigfoot on Friday and Saturday. I'd guess (absolutely no surprise here) that means Die Antwoord (Friday) and Cut Copy (Saturday) are playing late night sets. Either Major Lazer is doing the same on Sunday and there's one less act during the day or the last day of the festival ends earlier than the others.
This interview with Pemberton's promoters published on 3/14 said: "Good rock, hip-hop, your legendary headliner…it’s a lineup that spans 30+ years of music. We tend not to hone too specifically into one demographic. There will also be a little bit of EDM and a lot of great stuff that works really well together. I feel like this generation, young and old, loves to skip around and enjoy good music no matter what the genre is. People are really trying to experience a lot of music. So I try to program with that as the root." Nothing very definitive there.
I wonder if Pemberton will get the Nine Inch Nails / Soundgarden tour (or one of the two). The festival runs July 18-20. That tour starts in Nevada on the 19th, and there's a show in Colorado on the 20th. Admittedly, I know very little about Canadian geography, but I think they could conceivably show up. I know Nine Inch Nails came through the northwest in the fall, but Soundgarden hasn't announced a PNW show since the cancellation of the July weekend of Sasquatch. Nine Inch Nails played the only other Pemberton Festival. I can see this happening.
