05.21.13 / Burton Presents the 3rd Annual Frendly Gathering Music Festival in Windham, VT
Burlington, VT (May 21, 2013) Burton Snowboards is proud to present the third annual Frendly Gathering, taking place at Timber Ridge in Windham, Vermont on June 28th & 29th. Started by pro snowboarders Danny Davis and Jack Mitrani of the Frends Crew, the Frendly Gathering is a grassroots music festival that brings an incredible line-up of bands and DJs to the beautiful Green Mountains of southern Vermont.
At this year’s Frendly Gathering, the acclaimed tribal-electro trio Beats Antique is confirmed to headline the two-day event, along with other amazing confirmed artists, including Keller Williams, Rubblebucket, Paper Diamond, Conspirator, Toubab Krewe, Assembly of Dust, Vermont’s very own Twiddle, and many more. And if a weekend of music and camping with the Frends Crew isn’t enough, there will also be a skateboard ramp, hiking, swimming, yoga, live art and one-of-a-kind vendors for everyone to enjoy.
“The Frendly Gathering truly represents what the snowboard lifestyle is all about – hanging with friends, enjoying amazing music and sharing good times outdoors,” said Burton VP of Marketing Anne-Marie Dacyshyn. “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.”
“Our passion to build the ‘Frendly Gathering’ comes from growing up within the very inclusive community that snowboarding represents,” said Jack Mitrani. “We’re beyond excited to be taking The Frendly Gathering to the next level with a little help from our Frends at Burton Snowboards.”
To celebrate the upcoming Frendly Gathering and to kick-off summer, the Burton Flagship Store in Burlington, Vermont will host a free event on Saturday, May 25th from 1-6 pm, featuring live music by Twiddle, along with food, drinks and games. Special guests from the Frends Crew will be on hand, and Frendly Gathering tickets will be on sale at a discounted price for that day only. In addition, the Burton store will be fully loaded with the new 2013 Spring/Summer collection, and all guests will have a chance to win a VIP Frendly Gathering experience.
