Despite announcing their initial lineup just three weeks ago, Pemberton Music Festival has declared bankruptcy. Originally slated for July 13-16 at British Columbia’s Mt. Currie, organizers released a statement on Friday confirming the fest’s cancellation. The statement doesn’t give much info regarding why the event went bankrupt, but it does outline how attendees may receive their refunds:

Unfortunately there are no automatic refunds from PMF. As PMF is now in bankruptcy, it has no ability to provide refunds for tickets purchased. However ticketholders may file a proof of claim form as an unsecured creditor with EYI in accordance with the claims process. Proof of claim forms will be mailed to known PMF creditors in due course and made available on the Trustee’s website. A determination of recovery, if any, on the claims of ticket holders from the estate will not be known for several weeks. The Trustee will provide an update to creditors in due course.

Refunds may be available to ticketholders from third parties if tickets were purchased using a credit card. As each bank and credit card issuer have their own specific policies, ticketholders are to contact their bank or credit card issuer directly to determine whether a refund can be obtained. The Trustee will provide further details concerning contact information for the various credit cards and financial institutions on its website.”

TL;DR — If you want to get your money back from Pemberton Music Festival it ain’t going to be easy. Looks like after years of on again off again, PMF is officially off.
