Farmborough Festival: Country Comes to the Big Apple


For those of us who love country music but cannot make it down to CMA Fest in Nashville Tennessee, we finally have a tri-state area festival just for us, FarmBorough.

Randall’s Island in New York City will be taken over by some of the biggest names in country music and country music lovers alike for a three day party from June 26-28. This year will be the inaugural FarmBorough festival and the organizers are pulling out all the stops. Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Luke Bryan are slated as the main events and no one puts on a show like those three talented men.


FarmBorough not only boasts some of the most established and successful names in country music but also some of the best up and coming soon to be country stars. Maddie and Tae, Kip Moore, Dustin Lynch, Dallas Smith, Randy Houser, Joe Nichols, Canaan Smith, and my personal favorite, The Railers, are just a few more of the artists who are going to be showcasing their talents at Randall’s Island.

Country music fans know how to appreciate beer, good music, and great times so FarmBorough will be nothing short of amazing. The party will start when the gates open at 2 pm; the music will kick off at 3 pm daily and run until about 11 pm. That is 24 hours of live music, a complete day’s worth of music. That’s one hell of a way to spend a weekend.  You can get your tickets at
