Record & Tape Fair

About Goldrush Music Festival

Another autumn, another GOLDRUSH… it's become a Denver tradition that the weirdos gather each September to celebrate their inherent weirdness together. Although change is afoot for team-GOLDRUSH, this crucial addition to Denver's thriving scene of the underground arts and culture could not be interrupted. And so, it is with great pleasure that we bring you our best edition of GOLDRUSH yet for 2015. And heck, why not? In addition to featuring over 20 artists from around the world (including performers from as far as Stockholm, Berlin, Australia, and South Africa), GOLDRUSH will collaborate with Denver Small Press Fest's inaugural event to include a free book and art print fair on the morning of our Saturday program. Match that with our yearly cassette compilation and 'zine, not to mention our international Record & Tape Fair, and you're getting Denver's most unique festival experience. Come early for the GOLD… stay late for the RUSH.

GOLDRUSH is much more than a simple music festival. In its championing of the experimental community, GOLDRUSH has itself become an experimental community. In its broadcasting of the progressive arts, GOLDRUSH has itself become a work of progressive art. As ever, GOLDRUSH is collage, a suturing of styles, sounds, feels, feelings, colors, shapes, sizes, moods, and music, pulling as much innovation from all walks and wakes of life possible into an interactive, living experience.

As in years past, GOLDRUSH could not be possible without the support of our amazing network of sponsors — record shops, ice cream parlors, cassette labels, music blogs, book stores and more have all shown their support this endeavor, and we invite and welcome friends from all facets of our community to join in that effort. We are currently securing sponsors of all levels for GOLDRUSH 2015. Our mission remains to connect not only our community to one another, but to the world around us through progressive music. If this appeals to you or your business' ideals, and you'd like to be a part of this pioneering Denver music festival, please email
