Frendly Gathering promises weekend of 'good vibes'June 27,2013
By Christian Avard
WINDHAM — A two-day grass roots music festival is coming to Windham.
Burton Snowboards presents the third annual Frendly Gathering on Friday and Saturday at Timber Ridge in Windham.
The event was started by pro snowboarders Danny Davis and Jack Mitrani of the Frends Crew who are a group of snowboarders who believe there is no “i” in Frends. The festival will include a huge line-up of bands as well as DJs, a skateboard ramp, hiking, swimming, yoga, live art and vendors.
The acclaimed tribal-electro trio Beats Antique is scheduled to headline the event, along with Keller Williams, Rubblebucket, Paper Diamond, Conspirator, Toubab Krewe, Assembly of Dust, Vermont's very own Twiddle and more.
“The Frendly Gathering truly represents what the snowboard lifestyle is all about — hanging with friends, enjoying amazing music and sharing good times outdoors,” Anne-Marie Dacyshyn, Burton Vice-President of Marketing, said. “We're honored to be the presenting sponsor of the Frendly Gathering for the first time, and with the insane line-up and laid-back vibe, all taking place in beautiful Vermont, it's a summer festival not to be missed.”
