The Golden Sound Festival is getting set for its second Winter Block Party (in addition to two successful summer festivals) and Todd Menzies, Willhorse bassist and one of the festival’s organizers, is exceptionally pleased with how things have gone thus far.
“We’re starting to see more and more support not only from our community but from the Town itself,” Menzies said.
The festival will present an exciting lineup on Feb. 21, with breakout stars Head of the Herd, as well as Royal Tusk, taking their place as the headliners.
Menzies, who now lives in Vancouver, has been working on this winter’s lineup ever since their summer festival ended.
“I just try to bring the best to Golden that I can that may not necessarily make a stop in Golden on their regular tour or realize that there is a music scene or an appreciation for music (in town),” he said.
Head of the Herd hit it big with their sophomore album that included the single By This Time Tomorrow (feat. Jasmin Parkin) which soared to number one on Canadian rock charts.
Meanwhile, Royal Tusk has recently released their first EP, but singer/guitarist Daniel Carriere and bassist Sandy MacKinnon have been playing together for much longer as members of Juno-nominated Ten Second Epic.
The festival will also feature its first MC (Immaculate) as well as local favourites John Jenkins, Pablo Euphoria and Infinity Solstice.
“I want the Golden Sound Festival to be really diverse and have a bit of everything,” Menzies said.
