Goldrush Music Festival at Deer Pile, 9/21-9/22

GOLDRUSH 2 @ DEER PILE | 9/21/12-9/22/2012

By Leya Lynette and Tom Murphy

The hype around Goldrush 2 had not been identical to that of Goldrush 1. The original crew that did the booking had changed, and the festival this year focused on more under-the-radar acts from around the country in comparison to last year's lineup, which had more established bands. This year's primary organizer, Crawford Philleo, moved the show to a smaller venue to retain a larger amount of control over the show.
