FarmBorough Festival 2016 Announces Lineup
New York City is gearing up for one big country party this summer, when some of the genre’s biggest acts head to the Big Apple for the second annual FarmBorough Festival this June.
“Since the gates closed on FarmBorough last year we’ve been working towards today and how to come back even stronger than FarmBorough’s first year,” says Live Nation President of Country Touring Brian O’Connell in a press release. “Having the heavyweight power of such huge and distinct names as well as artists that I think will be the genre’s next big superstars on the bill helps ease the pressure a little bit of putting on a festival in the greatest city in the world. I can’t wait to get back out there and continue to make our mark on the Big Apple.”
Last year’s FarmBorough Festival marked New York City’s first-ever country music festival. Over 40,000 fans swarmed to the event to watch some of the genre’s best acts against the backdrop of New York City’s skyline. This year, FarmBorough co-founder Jordan Wolowitz says the festival will be better than before.
“We made history last year by launching New York City’s first-ever major country music festival,” he states. “The amazing lineup for FarmBorough 2016 speaks for itself, and we can’t wait to show everyone what’s in store for June. It’s gonna be awesome.”
Festival passes went on sale on Jan. 29 at the festival’s official website.
