Festival Fever: The Frendly Gathering Music Festival, 6/14-16/12

The Frendly Gathering

Kicking off on Thursday (June 14), the third annual Frendly Gathering (their motto is, “There is no ‘I’ in frends”) takes over Timber Ridge in Windham, Vermont, and in those three short years, the small grassroots gathering has grown into a full-fledged, fun-filled music festival. This year’s fest spans three days, five stages and 35 bands. In addition to all of the music, there’s also hiking, camping, yoga, skateboarding, swimming and other outdoor activities.

But the music is the main draw, and there’s plenty of it.

You can buy a Saturday-only ticket for $74.95; a Friday & Saturday pass for $99.95; or a full three-day pass for $124.95.

Here’s the daily line-up of musical talent at the 2012 fest:
