The AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival 2022 was an incredible success! Rusty Shackles kicked off the event on Friday, July 29 on the 1st Summit Oilhouse Stage, and Vanessa Collier turned in one of the most crowd-pleasing sets of the weekend immediately following. Brandon “Taz” Neiderauer lit up the Bud Light Mainstage, rolling into a sublime headlining set by Railroad Earth. It was one of the biggest Fridays at the festival we’ve seen in years. Saturday Buffalo Rose entertained a big early crowd on the JAHA Pavilion Stage, and Karina Rykman jumped from her originally-scheduled late-night slot to provide direct support to the Spin Doctors’ headlining set. SunSquabi, a ninth-hour replacement for Big Something (who had to cancel), held the crowd late into the night to close the festival.
