Last weekend music lovers descended upon Golden’s Beaverfoot Lodge for the second annual Sync Music Festival.

Last weekend music lovers descended upon Golden’s Beaverfoot Lodge for the second annual Sync Music Festival.

Christine Hunter, talent manager for Shambhala Music Festival and music lover attended Sync and in a haze of post-festival withdrawal (common with all festival goers) she shared her thoughts with {vurb}.

“Last year the production level for them was like 80 per cent and this year it was 100 per cent,” said Hunter. “It’s a crew from Calgary called Symmetry Sound that does it. It’s a group of five people. They are pretty ambitious. It’s a huge site.”

This year’s line-up featured Minnesota, Yan Zombie with Vs. An-ten-nae and more.

“They have something good going on,” said Hunter. “This year was flawless. Everything from perfect. It’s not a sponsored festival so they have to sell tickets to get by. From the entrance to the greeting, the music and the stages was excellent.”

On Friday night, she said that Mark Instinct’s set along with Minnesota were highlights.

“It was the first time that Minnesota played Canada so they sold a lot of tickets,” said Hunter. “Friday was way busier than last year.”

Wakcutt, a Shambhala veteran, played Saturday night and Hunter said his set was flawless.
