Pemberton Music Festival starts this Thursday: a full four days of music and good times in one of the most beautiful settings in BC.

But don’t worry if you don’t have a ticket, the awesome folks at Pemby Fest (as it’s affectionately known as to locals) are putting on a whole day of free concerts in Whistler at the Olympic Plaza open-air stage, as part of the summer’s “Whistler Concert Series”.

These bands will be playing at Pemberton Music Festival over the weekend, too. But they’ve also agreed to play for everyone in Whistler, as well. What nice people, they are!
