Three years ago, the Frends crew had a vision to bring together fans and celebrate their love of music in the great outdoors. The crew came up with The Frendly Gathering, a festival-themed event focused on camping and jamming.
The grass-roots event was first held in Mammoth Lakes, California and less than 100 people attended. This year, The Frendly Gathering is gearing up to host more than 25 major musicians.
Jack Mitrani, founding member of the Frends Crew commented, “It started as a means to get all of our friends together at the same time. That was three years ago, and now it’s a full blown music festival with some of our favorite bands playing.”
The festival will take place at Timber Ridge, Vermont on June 14-16 and boasts acts like Railroad Earth, Deer Tick, DJ Z-Trip, and SOJA.
