Eureka! We Struck Festival Gold at Arizona’s Goldrush 2019

Dr. Fresch at Goldrush 2019

Yee-haw Cowpokes, Goldrush is back in town! Relentless Beats‘ 3rd annual Goldrush returned to Rawhide Western Town and Event Center for two days this past September 27-28, 2019. The event boasted four stages, 40+ musical acts and several individual experiences ranging from General Admission to Platinum VIP, which included private meet and greets, complimentary drinks, steakhouse dinner, raised viewing deck, front-row viewing, air-conditioned bathrooms, gift bag, and chances to hang with your favorite artists in the Platinum Lounge.

Located just outside Phoenix, the venue provided the perfect backdrop for this western-themed festival. The quaint American frontier replica town combined with the mechanical bull amplified the feeling of the Wild West and invited participants to join the theme. The jail housed partner GreenPharms, a medical dispensary, where attendees had the chance to pick up some killer swag, get a picture taken while locked in the jail cell, or sign up to win an Arizona medical card for a year. The shooting gallery was free to play and would catch a few festival goers who were changing stages or looking for a way to kill time before the next act. Keeping true to the theme, attendees could be seen rocking everything from cowboy boots and chaps to light-up fuzzy coats and nothing but glitter.

Although Goldrush is a relatively new festival, the lineup was nothing short of impressive. Some noteworthy acts from the weekend included a sax heavy set from Zhu, vibrant visuals from Oliver Heldens, straight up filth and grime from Shlump and a bass blow-out from retired NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, performing as DJ Diesel. The 7’1’ DJ Diesel joined the crowd toward the end of his set and moshed alongside festival goers and even lifted a rail-riding 5ft girl into the air like she was a paper doll. DJ Diesel also made a point to meet, shake hands, exchange hugs, and grab a few quick selfies with festival goers after he climbed out of the mosh pit and walked backstage. His set seemed to be a crowd favorite and even Dr. Fresch was spotted on stage during Shaq’s set dancing around and hyping up the crowd while wearing a sombrero.

The visuals were intense with many amazing light and video productions, but what was really breathtaking were the views from the venue of the natural landscape and mountain sunsets. It was blissful to be vibing along to great music while watching the sun disappear behind the Phoenix mountains.

Don’t forget to shine those boots and we will catch you cowpokes at next year’s hoedown!
