The newest rock festival in North America, the Pemberton Festival, debuts July 25-27 in Pemberton, B.C., a small town not far from the popular Whistler ski resort. Coldplay (pictured), Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Jay-Z and Nine Inch Nails are among the more than 50 performers who will play on two stages, plus there’ll be a dance stage. The site — a hayfield outside of town, with spectacular mountain vistas — is about a two-mile drive from Vancouver. Three-day tickets are $259.50 Canadian (www.pembertonfestival.com).
