Pemberton Festival Street Style

Rompers and retro looks ruled Pembyfest 2015

Festivalgoers beat the heat in style at this year’s Pembyfest

From July 15 to 19, 115,000 fans flooded Pemberton B.C. for the Pemberton Valley Music Festival, a five-day outdoor extravaganza featuring live entertainment from world-class artists in music (rock, hip-hop, indie, metal + more) and comedy.

As the mercury maxed out at over 35 degrees, festivalgoers favoured the less-is-more approach when deciding what to wear, and some managed to beat the heat while still staying on-trend. Here’s our look at nine standouts.
