The Frends Crew, a group of professional snowboarders (Jack Mitrani, Danny Davis, Scotty Lago, Luke Mitrani, Kevin Pearce, and Mason Aguirre) formed from a shared belief that there is "no 'I' in Frends and combined with a love for music, started The Frendly Gathering as a yearly celebration of live music and friendship. Now in its second year, the grass roots music festival celebrating live music, the outdoors and friendship will showcase the music of more than 25 artists to provide a live soundtrack throughout an intimate three-day festival with four stages, camping,skateboarding, hiking, swimming, live art, and a host of other activities. Setting the balance with world-renowned music headliners and aspiring up-and-comers, The Frendly Gathering strives to create a world of live music that all friends can enjoy together. Set in the picturesque Vermont countryside on the backside of the ski resort Magic Mountain, attendees can camp all over the festival grounds and make a home for the weekend. Not a camper? RV parking is available at the venue along with a choice of hotels nearby at Magic Mountain.
