Full ticketing details and 2015 prices, including VIP and Super VIP packages, are available at www.pembertonmusicfestival.com.

“We might be announcing our lineup on April Fool’s Day, but we aren’t joking around,” says HUKA Entertainment co-founder A.J. Niland.  “The lineup is exceptionally deep and each and every day will be full of surprises and special moments to match the magic of our beautiful Pemberton Valley festival site.  It’s always a bit of a battle as a small indie promoter to get the acts you want, but we worked extra hard this year to make sure we’re bringing the best to B.C.”

Pemberton Music Festival is a four-day contemporary music festival in British Columbia’s scenic Pemberton Valley, near the foot of majestic Mt. Currie. Produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment, in collaboration with the Village of Pemberton and land partners the Sunstone Group, the Lil’wat Nation and Squamish-Lillooet Regional District, the festival turns Pemberton Valley, located less than thirty minutes from Whistler, BC, into a premiere musical playground on par with HUKA’s other award-winning festivals.

The festival provides a blend of on-site camping and off-site hotel lodging options. While camping options will allow attendees to stay directly on festival grounds, those seeking the comforts of a home away from home can secure traditional lodging in nearby Whistler, BC. Non-camping patrons will have access to festival-supplied transportation, including shuttles from Whistler.

Campgrounds for 2015 will be expanded to include property on both sides of the Sea to Sky Highway, which means that campers parked on the south side of the road opposite the festival grounds will have the option to camp there, and will no longer be required to carry their gear across the bridge spanning the road to the festival site. Additionally, paths from other parking lots leading to festival campgrounds will be upgraded to include hard-packed surfaces with minimal obstructions.

Other improvements will include food service and offerings for VIP patrons as well as placement of campground amenities, including showers and water filling stations.

Pemberton Music Festival is proud to welcome its partners Molson Canadian, SiriusXM and Somersby Cider to its 2015 event.

J.MYSTERY Releases His Pure and Earnest Single “Everlasting Love”

J.MYSTERY drops his latest single, “Everlasting Love,” which takes all the emotion and heart of his sound and pours it into something pure.

J.MYSTERY

The name of Portuguese singer-songwriter J.MYSTERY has grown synonymous with high-quality and emotionally resonant sounds that strike something deep within listeners, amplified by the artist’s magnetic performances and enigmatic, distinctive presence. J.MYSTERY’s latest single, “Everlasting Love,” takes all of the emotion and heart of his sound and pours it into something that feels pure and earnest, evoking the spirit and euphoria of a new relationship and the wonder and optimism that comes with it.

These thoughts and feelings are captured as much through the artist’s delivery and soundscape as it does in his lyrics, creating an atmosphere and feel that is full of hope and dreams and visions of a brighter future.

J.MYSTERY says of the track:

“I wrote ‘Everlasting Love’ thinking of the early stages of a relationship when you want to know more about the person next to you, and you start planning for the future because you know there’s something unique, something worth fighting for. Everlasting love.”

There is an engrossing charm and vulnerability to this sound that reinforces this statement and makes for a raw and easily identifiable ode to the most sincere form of love.

While the exciting artist has made a name for himself over the last few years as a unique and boundary-pushing talent, doing things his way and carving out a unique path and vision, it is the more human and emotional side that has cemented his growing following. This new release sees him continue to open up and bare his soul while maintaining a level of intrigue and mystique through his otherworldly atmospheric style. “Everlasting Love” is out January 26th.
