Stake Your Claim at Goldrush Music Festival

Written by Mara M. Mannella

As the inaugural Goldrush Music Festival draws closer, more details have been revealed about what attendees can expect as they dance from stage to stage. On November 18 and 19, Rawhide Event Center will be home to the wildest in the west, from the depths of the unpredictable underground to the boundary pushing sounds of hip-hop and bass. The talent for the three main stages has been revealed and there are more details to come on a local talent stage – let’s discover what gold lies in them thar hills of Chandler, AZ:


Golden Gorge

This gilded stage plays host to heavy-hitters like Dillon Francis and RL Grime along with a special performance by the nastiest of them all, Excision. While the closers at this stage are sure to draw the masses, don’t sleep on the talent appearing throughout the event like genre-blasting Habstrakt, the versatile Keys N Krates and space mom herself, Rezz.


Pioneer Peak

Aptly named, this stage will see some of the most innovative artists Goldrush has to offer. Iconic artists like Flatbush Zombies and Brillz, envelope-pushers like Mija and Barclay Crenshaw as well as certified legend A-Trak going back to back with bass god Baauer all promise to take the Pioneer Peak stage down a trail you’ve never been down before.


The Hideout

From the depths of the desert comes The Hideout stage, offering the most thrilling house and techno lineup Arizona has ever seen. Howl at the moon with the likes of Nicole Moudaber, Camelphat and Paco Osuna to name a few. Fueled by RBDeep, this stage will satisfy your darker side.


The Wild West hasn’t seen anything yet – come November 18 and 19,  Goldrush Music Festival is going to kick up some serious dust. Tickets and more information can be found here.


Can’t wait to saddle up? Relentless Beats is hosting a series of Goldrush expeditions, the next one taking place this Friday, October 20th featuring Drezo, Wax Motif, Gladiator, Nukid and Gerry Gonza.
