Snapshots: Saturday at the Gateway Festival

The weather was warm and sunny and the music was loud and clear at the Gateway Music Festival in Bengough this weekend. Friday Night saw a combination of great local acts like Surf Dads, Kara Golemba and Poor Nameless Boy and national touring headliners like Big Sugar, Yukon Blonde and The Kentucky Headhunters.
The crowd was a diverse selection of Craven Country Jamboree types, local countryfolk and hipsters from Saskatoon. Plus a couple cats from Moose Jaw. Including a pair of the friendly city's most cherished musicians; Brodie Moniker and Megan Nash.
There was even a pancake breakfast all three mornings in the town of Bengough and a pool stage set up during the afternoons so festival goers could swim and lounge by the pool while listening to some great live music.
The whole event, much like Ness Creek the weekend before, served as a great reminder of how great the musical talent in Saskatchewan actually is.
