Im betting this main reason of this cancelling is to do with Pemberton. Meh. Not really that big of a deal. V-fest 2007 in Vancouver sucked ass anyways.

Agreed. Judging by the shitty lineup that is Calgary's V-Fest...I think Pemberton has arranged for some pretty good acts to be there, and Van V-Fest cannot top that now. I think V-Fest (except maybe Baltimore...TO is not too bad either) is dying before it could really even become considered something great. Lack of up-and-coming talent (like Coachella, etc.) and weak headliners can do that to a fest.
See you at Pemberton!
the main reason for no v vancouver is - THERE ARE TOO MANY FESTIVALS this year, period. Concert dollars are strapped these days and even with the different cities, there just isn't enough people who will repeatedly drop $300-700 on a festival weekend, every month.
I go to 2 or 3 fests a year. Usually that is Coachella, Lolla and Pitchfork.
This year that is APW, V Fest Toronto, and Pitchfork. I wouldn't want to spend anymore as those 3 are the cheapest for me to do this year. I woulda like to have done Coachella this year (as you all know) or Pemberton as well.
