Rise and Shine Festival


Nestled in the heart of Pemberton, on a farm at the base of Mount Currie, Rise and Shine Festival kicked off the summer season with a bang.

DJs, blue skies, great pals, camping and dancing pretty much sums up our experience. Doesn’t sound too bad, eh?


Not only did this one-day festival host some amazing local artists (Funk Hunters, SkiiTour, Average-Gypsy + many more) but it was also a great way to get over the recently cancelled Pemberton Fest (pour one out, RIP), which was set to happen across the road! To top it all off, all proceeds went to The Rise and Shine Foundation. We partied for a cause, so our hangovers were well worth it.

Admittedly, by the time we were #blessed by the presence of The Funk Hunters at 11pm, things were a bit blurry… Hydrating yourself with beer in 30-degree weather can do this to a man, but hey, these are signs of having a blast!


The only thing we were sad about is that it was only 1 day. We’ll see you there next year, 10/10.

987 out.
