“Our goal is to build the most unique golf tournament and festival out there, not only by distributing live music throughout the event, but also by having our contribution to MusicCounts help put music in the hands and ears of our communities’ children,” said Brad Krauza, CEO of Gonzo Okanagan.

“We believe music can change lives in many ways. Music can bring joy, create memories, we believe, also heal. Together, through music, we can make a difference.”

After 10:00 p.m. once the festival is over, the music keeps going with an official afterparty at The Ok Corral with Econoline Crush until the venue must close.
