Local band Willhorse is one of many scheduled for the Golden Sound Festival on Sept. 7.

Golden Sound Festival moving ahead with different format

A few changes have been made to the Golden Sound Festival, but the show will go on in downtown Golden.

The Golden Sound Festival, scheduled to happen this Saturday Sept. 7 at the Go Organic Sports Ranch in Parson, is undergoing some changes to their format.

Organizers said that numerous things have fallen through in the past few days that have made the event impossible as it stands. Some key contractors were not able to participate in the festival and slower than expected ticket sales have also been an issue.

“Ticket sales from out of town were very strong with many people from all over western Canada eager to come and enjoy the Festival.  However, local tickets sales were lack-lustre, which was also a contributing factor for the change of structure and presentation of the festival,” said festival director Jeremy Green.

Organizers are working with entertainment venues around Golden to present a simultaneous music festival experience.

“We are still putting on a wicked show for a lower cost,” said festival director Todd Menzies.

Tickets will now cost $30 for a multi-venue pass. Due to the change in structure, ticket holders have the option for a full refund. Those ticket holders who still wish to check out the festival will receive the difference of cost at the venue.
