When you think of New York City, you probably don’t immediately associate it with country music. However, as the genre grows in popularity, New York City proves time and time again that its got “one or two hillbillies ready to hit the road” for good country music.
In June 2015, New Yorkers won’t have to hit the road for its first every country music fest, the Farmborough Festival, featuring headliners Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley. The three day event, hosted by Live Nation Entertainment and Founders Entertainment, will take place on New York’s Randall’s Island June 26-28, 2015.
Other performers for the monumental event include Wade Bowen, Brandy Clark, Maddie & Tae, Kip Moore, Ashley Monroe, Randy Houser, The Cadillac Three and Dwight Yoakam with more to be revealed in the coming weeks.
“We’ve been dreaming about bringing a country festival to New York for a long time, and we feel like the time is right now. We have the perfect partner in Founders and the perfect location on Randall’s Island to really bring fans and artists something special,” said Brian O’Connell, Live Nation President of Country Touring. “New York City is a global destination. Country fans from all over the world can come to the city and take advantage of all it has to offer, while enjoying three days of the best country music acts too.”
“We’re thrilled to bring our hometown of New York City its first-ever Country music festival. This has been many years in the making, and we couldn’t be more excited to launch FarmBorough in June,” said Co-founder and Partner at Founders Entertainment, Jordan Wolowitz. “Brian O’Connell and his team at Live Nation are the ideal partners for this venture, and together we form a festival dream team. With Governors Ball, and now FarmBorough, New York City is host to premier, world class, music festivals.”
