Golden Sound Festival began as a pipedream for organizers Todd Menzies, Jeremy Green and Pat Legare. Combining Menzies Music Productions and Golden Delicious Production to form Golden Sound Festival Society, in hopes of bringing the next level of entertainment to their small mountain-town of Golden, B.C.
Since the inaugural summer festival in 2013 there has been over 100 artists to grace the stages of Golden Sound Festival including; Yukon Blonde, Five Alarm Funk, Bright Light Social Hour, The Dudes, We Are the City, Head of the Herd, Shred Kelly and many more. Beginning as what was known as the “Block Party”, a multi-venue style festival in the likes of SXSW, Rifflandia & CMW. Artistic director Todd Menzies has curated a diverse lineup each year, to make this boutique festival stand out among the many summer festivals across western Canada. Being one of the only festival to run bi-annually; with summer and winter festivals every six months, and to include every genre from folk, punk, electronic dance music, and everything in between.
