After a successful first year last Labor Day weekend, Affinity Experience and Bedroom Studios are excited to announce the dates of its second annual Friendzy Fest. Slated for August 11th-15th, 2022, the festival will return to its home at Rangeton Park, AB for four days of music, camping, art, and mindful, holistic workshops “Where friends become family.”
What started as a group of 50 friends that wanted to get away from reality has now turned into a sensation amongst artists and fans all over western Canada. Nestled along the scenic and serene Pembina River, Alberta’s Rangeton Park will host this year’s Friendzy Fest: The Year Of The Mushroom. As a local treasured event just under 1.5 hours from Edmonton, Friendzy Fest will celebrate in proper fashion, hosting a collection of talented artists both in the local and national markets.
This year’s second installment will see increased production, including a wide array of performances on its classic 60-foot stage as well as a second beach stage, 70,000+ watts of bass, projection mapping, a visual light show, themed days, food trucks, free on-site water refill stations, and more.
Placing an emphasis on showcasing western Canada’s diverse music scene, Friendzy Fest has become a staple festival in Alberta’s music community, highlighting a wide array of musical talent in dubstep, house, drum & bass, and techno throughout its four days. While last year’s inception saw headlining sets from Small Town DJ’s, Prayer Handz, Kimati, and more, partnered promoters Bedroom Studios help bring live musical artists to the mix, having hosted Brasstactics, Tate Irving, and Jodie B in the past. This year’s 2022 event will continue the traditional diverse music lineup, booking up-and-coming artists from both the electronic and live band scenes.
Returning again this year is Mel’s Mastery Art Tent, which will be exhibiting local art. From painting, glass blowing, and many other artistic disciplines, Mel’s Mastery Art Tent is always a “must” stop when venturing around the festival grounds. Throughout the four days, art master classes are designed for any experience level, encouraging everyone to allow the creative juices to flow. Close enough to the stage, you won’t be missing any of the music that radiates from the stage area.
