For the past 3 weekends, I had a different event to attend each week! You can imagine how busy I was, but they were all very exciting! Here’s the events I attended in order: Fvded in the park, Vancouver Pro/Am show, and Pemberton Music Festival. This vlog also includes some clips of my daily life. I wasn’t planning on making a video; hence why the videos seem incomplete, but here’s a sneak peak of what my life looks like. Let me know if you would like to see more!
What you didn’t see in this video, was why I had the worst weekend of my life in Pemberton. Where do I even begin?
First night of Pemberton, one of the girls I was working with ‘accidentally’ took my bag. She returned it the next day anonymously, minus two items that were in my bag.
The next night, it took us 1.5 hours at 2:00 in the morning to find my car in the enormous parking lot loaded with a billion cars. We literally walked up and down the entire parking lot at least 5 times before I found my car. The panic button wouldn’t work either unless the keys were literally touching the car. I actually thought I wasn’t going to make it back to the house that night.
On the last day, I was so excited to finish up my cleaning tasks and to make my way home to Vancouver as soon as I was done work.
Only one problem.
My wallet and keys were left in the room that the supervisors (the ones with the keys to the room) decided to lock up early.
I began freaking out.
This was my second time losing my bag that weekend and i just wanted to go home! Not to mention I had to go to my full time job the next morning! Luckily, one of the supervisors stayed and gave me the contact information of the key holder, but it still felt like a journey to go find her on festival grounds.
Would I ever work for this company again? Probably not. I’m done with festivals for awhile.
*Disclaimer* I was working for a staffing agency, NOT for Pemberton Festival directly. The name of the staffing agency shall remain anonymous unless I feel the need to disclose that information.
