GoldenSky is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents in Partnership with Visit Sacramento, which also brings the Aftershock Music Festival to Sacramento. GoldenSky will take place the weekend following Aftershock, and it promises to be every bit as inviting and exciting for country fans as Aftershock is for rock fans.
Passes go on sale at 10 a.m. April 29 at the official GoldenSky website, and you can sign up for the newsletter there to gain exclusive presale offers, which begin at 10 a.m. on April 27.
Pricing for the passes ranges from $59.99 for a single-day, general admission ticket to $199.99 for a weekend VIP pass.
“Visit Sacramento is thrilled to realize our pre-pandemic plan of partnering with Danny Wimmer Presents to add a second destination music festival in Sacramento,” said Mike Testa, President & CEO of Visit Sacramento. “Events like these not only raise Sacramento’s profile as a leisure destination, they also make our market more attractive to prospective conventions, business relocations, private development and more, on top of building community pride by hosting a music festival with wide appeal.”
In addition to the music, there will be a dance hall saloon, craft beer festival, farm-to-fork food offerings, local artisans and more.
“Besides the amazing lineup, GoldenSky has been curated to create a one-of-a-kind country music festival experience rooted in the capital city,” says Chamie McCurry, Chief Marketing Officer at Danny Wimmer Presents. “Our GoldenSky Beer Festival allows fans to tailgate INSIDE the festival by sampling over 100 craft beers, The Farmhouse will showcase the best farm-to-fork offerings in Sacramento, the El Dorado Market will be THE place to shop for souvenirs, and we can’t wait to see everyone line dancing in the River City Saloon & Dance Hall. It’s been three years in the making, and we couldn’t be more excited to finally be here today, announcing it to the world.”
In addition to two full days of music performances, GoldenSky will also feature an array of onsite experiences, including:
