Tickets are $59 in advance or $69 at the door. The money raised benefits both the local non-profit organization Gonzo Fundraising Association, an initiative dedicated to promoting and developing events and artists of all ages, and MusiCounts, Canada's music education charity associated with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and The JUNO Awards.

At MusiCounts, they make music education inclusive, sustainable, and accessible for youth across Canada by providing musical instruments, equipment, and resources.

Bringing as much music as possible to the hearts of Okanaganites and shining a light on local talent is the ultimate goal of the event. The festival promises to be a great time for everyone involved.

The event organizers are passionate about their mission to change people's lives through music. They know it has the ability to make us feel, heal and create memories that will last in the community forever.

While it may seem unconventional, at this golf tournament guests will be treated to live music at every golf hole, along with the live music festival experience that is promised. Highlighting local musicians and music programs has never been easier thanks to Gonzo Okanagan!
