A few weeks ago, Gold Rush blessed us with a weekend packed with love, peace, happiness and good music. This was a truly exuberant event and memory that we will keep close to our hearts forever. I could reproach the festivities by elaborating on each and every performance, but honestly it was much more than just that.
Recently, the world has been coated with black. Events, like music festivals, that usually bring us endless elation have been intruded by wistful behavior. This was more than just a fun weekend with an intriguing lineup but a time for avid fans to get together and pull out their purity and innocence stuck underneath terror.
Unlike other Relentless Beats events hosted at Rawhide, the set up was a bit different. Stages were throughout the westernized town. Attendees were able to enjoy a more diverse environment. In addition to the setup, all fest-goers were compelled to push their way through, not only one or two lines of security, but three. This calmed pre-event jitters.
Leaving San Holo minutes early to catch the beginning of Mija defined bittersweet.
A personal favorite of mine was San Holo. I was prying for the intro to ‘The Future’. Finally, he sedated me with the familiar airwaves towards the end of his set. It was my second time seeing Migos perform. Despite that, they were one of the most interactive sets there. Keys N Krates had me head bopping. And I’m not going to lie, throwing out trap hands on my best friend’s shoulders during Marshmello was the peak of the trip.

As the two-day festival came to a close, I had to walk away from one of the most necessary weekends of my life. I am able to reminisce on the memories with a smile touching from ear to ear. Gold Rush became my escape from all reality and sometimes that’s all that one needs. For information on Gold Rush 2018, or other Relentless Beats events, click here.
