Pemberton, Concert Stage

Braving monster dust clouds, crazy traffic and sleep deprivation, the team here at E! rocked the Pemberton Music Fest! And with our Pemberton edition of E! News Weekend just a few days away (Friday night), our all-star team would like to share some of our favourite moments from the baddest rock show around!

Jason Ruta (Host):
All of the outtakes with Arisa Cox. Just all those funny moments. Though, you know, it was also nice to finally get a bath and clean off all that dirt!

Jay Armstrong (Producer):
There was a guy riding around on a bike with a watermelon on his head.

Karl Leung (Producer/Editor):
4 words: sweaty girls and mushrooms.

David Hyde (Writer/Director):
Flaming Lips… Front row… Unbelievable. Chromeo’s show was mind blowing too… And in the Tom Petty show there was an extremely high number of people on mushrooms. A guy even ran by with a watermelon on his head!

Kim Clarke Champniss (Executive Producer):
Our editors in the blue E! tent editing on their final cut pro systems, the tent zipped up as best as possible to prevent the clouds of dust from entering the cluttered space and the sensitive machines. The wind whipping the loose flaps, cameramen and producers popping in and out bringing tapes, political problems and more dust, the boom of the music thumping on our ears, the hourly deadline fast approaching to complete the edits for satellite feed out, and everyone remaining calm and focused amid these horrendous conditions.


John Mlachak (Production Manager):
There was some drunk guy standing by a bunch of stuff, and he screamed out, “The most important job in the world is watching stuff!” I don’t know why, but that just stuck out in my mind.
