HHC x Pemberton Music Festival: Win two passes to Pemberton Music Festival [Contest]

Pemberton, BC – In case you haven’t heard, HUKA Entertainment has partnered with Molson Canadian, SiriusXM Canada, and Somersby Cider for this year’s instillation of Pemberton Music Festival. And it’s going to be huge. The headlining roster includes the likes of Outkast, Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Chance The Rapper, ScHoolboy Q, Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Flying Lotus, araabMUZIK, Tory Lanez, and more (peep the entire festival line-up over here).

Pemberton Music Festival was recently expanded into a five-day festival that will take place from July 16 through July 20 in Pemberton, BC. The festival features nearly 100 performances in six separate performance areas (two main stages, two secondary stages, a dance tent and a comedy area). That’s five hard-hitting days full of music, comedy, and camping in beautiful British Columbia.

And because we like to deliver the goods, we’ve got some gigantic news for you. We’ve just teamed up with the good folks over at Pemberton Music Festival for a giveaway of supreme awesome status. We have two festival passes to give away to one lucky music fan. That’s right – you could be on your way to Pemberton to take in one of the most hyped-about music festivals of the summer. Passes include free camping, or a free shuttle pass to transport you to-and-from the festival (if you opt for lodging in the Whistler area). Passes do not include travel, though. So you’ll have to arrange that yourself. Check out more information and full contest entry details after the jump. And head on over here to check out festival FAQs, and other important business.
