Earlier this month organizers of the Pemberton Music Festival announced the initial lineup for this year’s festival, which was set to take place at the base of Mt. Currie in Pemberton, British Columbia on July 13 – 16. Sadly, Pemberton ’17 will not happen according to a note posted on the event’s website.
Just 18 days after the lineup was revealed, Pemberton organizers have declared bankruptcy. The note on PembertonMusicFestival.com states this year’s festival was cancelled and advises there will be no automatic refunds from organizers. Here’s the part of the statement for ticketholders:
Unfortunately there are no automatic refunds from PMF. As PMF is now in bankruptcy, it has no ability to provide refunds for tickets purchased. However ticketholders may file a proof of claim form as an unsecured creditor with EYI in accordance with the claims process. Proof of claim forms will be mailed to known PMF creditors in due course and made available on the Trustee’s website. A determination of recovery, if any, on the claims of ticket holders from the estate will not be known for several weeks. The Trustee will provide an update to creditors in due course.
Refunds may be available to ticketholders from third parties if tickets were purchased using a credit card. As each bank and credit card issuer have their own specific policies, ticketholders are to contact their bank or credit card issuer directly to determine whether a refund can be obtained. The Trustee will provide further details concerning contact information for the various credit cards and financial institutions on its website.
The diverse Pemberton lineup featured headliners Chance The Rapper, Muse and A Tribe Called Quest. The slate of performers also included Ween, MGMT, HAIM, Run The Jewels, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Slightly Stoopid, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, GRiZ, The Marcus King Band, Thundercat and many more.
