The Golden Sound Music Festival NEEDS to be on your radar! Nestled in the Rocky Mountains of Golden BC, this must attend boutique music festival experience is going down THIS WEEKEND (August 19-20). Kora took a few minutes to sit down with the festival director and local legend The Todd Father aka Todd Menzies. Find out a little bit more about this golden weekend that’s about to go down!
K- For those who don’t know can you give us a quick run down of what Golden Sound Festival is?
T – Golden Sound Festival is a multi-venue music festival based in the downtown core of Golden BC. Featuring 15 bands on 4 stages over 3 days. Golden offers a variety of outdoor activities that our festival goers partake in during the day including; rock climbing, mountain biking and rafting to name a few. Then they hit the town at night to experience live music in an intimate atmosphere.
K- What are some your favourite aspects of the festival?
T- I really love the outdoor stage in Spirit Square. We offer a free, all-age community concert in the town centre called The Spirit Square. It’s really great to see the kids & music lovers of all ages, dancing and enjoying music. I also love the connection that the bands make at Golden Sound Festival, as a formal artist myself I feel it is import to offer a great experience for the bands as well as the people attending the festival.
K- Who are you most excited to see on the bill this year?
T- The Bright Light Social Hour. I have been a big fan of them since I stumbled across their set at NXNE is Toronto in 2013. Since then I have seen the band twice in Vancouver, and I am very excited to showcase them as our headliner for GSF 2016. Being from Austin Texas, they don’t play Canada very often, especially in small towns like Golden.
K- If you could describe GSF as an animal of the spirit type what animal would you choose and why?
T- Golden Sound Festival would be a Pine Martin. Smaller in size then most music festivals but very unique. Surviving in the mountains, both in the summer and winter.
