Music fans, get ready: Hamilton’s annual free outdoor festival with live music, vendors, food, and more is making a full return for 2022.
Festival of Friends hasn’t been able to host its usual large-scale event since before the pandemic began. In 2021, they were able to pull off a special one-day Concert in the Park event as a smaller version of the usual summer staple.
However, the festival in all its glory will be returning to Hamilton’s Gage Park from July 29th to 31st, 2022; and this time, the organizers are teasing a music lineup of 100 per cent Canadian artists.

It’s an excitingly homegrown approach that feels especially meaningful after the pandemic brought more than 2 years of significant impacts on Canada’s live music industry.
Though the 2022 artists are still a secret, the Festival of Friends has indicated that they’ll be announcing the full lineup this coming Friday, which has led to locals taking a guess at which Canadian artists they think will be taking the stage at Gage Park this summer!
Who do you hope to see in the 2022 lineup for the return of the Festival of Friends? Let us know in the comments!
