Here in the Northwest, we are lucky to have some amazing summer festivals all over Oregon, British Columbia and Washington. Whether these festivals are new or old, the lineups (in most cases) get better and better every year, bringing the hottest up-and-coming acts, along with headliners that can sell out arenas on their own. Here are our top picks of the Northwest’s summer/early fall festivals that are worth the time and money (in no particular order).

Pemberton Music Festival 2008

Pemberton Music Festival 2008

1. Pemberton Music Festival – July 18-20
Pemberton, British Columbia

It’s finally happening! This year marks a very special year as we see the resurrection of Pemberton Music Festival. With 2008 being the only year the festival was held, the lineup was massive and featured many major EDM acts such MSTRKRFT, deadmau5, The Crystal Method, and Chromeo and other nationally recognized acts ranging from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Jay-Z, Coldplay, and Nine Inch Nails. This year an upgraded dance tent is set to be added to the festival with capacity for more people and no lines. Be on the lookout for the lineup to be here very soon. Early bird tickets have already sold out and general tickets will be going on sale soon. More ticket info can be found HERE.

*EDIT*  – You can find newly released lineup information here.
