FarmBorough Festival Takes NYC!

FarmBorough

New York City hosted its first-ever country music festival this past weekend, as the inaugural FarmBorough, a collaboration between Live Nation Entertainment and Founders Entertainment, took over Randall’s Island with over 40,000 fans in attendance.

FarmBorough kicked off the three-day, two-stage festival taking over New York City’s Central Park on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series, with a performance by Friday’s headliner Dierks Bentley, as well as guests Kip Moore, Maddie & Tae and Canaan Smith getting a preview of some of the festival’s food trucks and more before heading down to Randall’s Island to kick off the festival’s first night “with thousands lounging on the grounds, eating barbecue and singing along with acts” – Associated Press.

With the festival’s first year in full swing on Saturday, “for both a genre and a city, it’s a milestone” noted The Star Ledger, and as a testament to the city’s loyal country music following, fans powered through an onslaught of rain to enjoy Saturday’s headliner Brad Paisley who kept fans spirits high throughout his set including a spine-tingling collaboration of “Whiskey Lullaby” with earlier performer Mickey Guyton.

With fans enjoying the festival’s multiple onsite activities including a giant inflatable slide and Skyhawk Swing throughout the day on Sunday, headliner Luke Bryan closed out the night with a hit-filled set, as Village Voice heralded the festival’s diverse lineup commenting “FarmBorough aligns chart toppers like Bryan with household names like Dwight Yoakam and those innovating within the framework of a more traditional sound, like Jon Pardi and Sturgill Simpson.”

“This weekend was a dream come true,” said Brian O’ Connell Live Nation President of Country Touring. “It really doesn’t get bigger than New York City and the way that the country community here and those who travelled to get here, took a chance on us and embraced FarmBorough in its first year has astounded me. I can’t say it enough how thankful I am to all the fans and the artists who joined in with me on this.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the success of FarmBorough’s inaugural year,” said Co-founder and Partner at Founders Entertainment, Jordan Wolowitz.  “New York City fully embraced the Country community and FarmBorough proved that it’s here to say. We can’t wait for 2016!”

Dierks Bentley will kickstart the crowd in New York City on Friday (6/26), as he takes over Central Park for an early four song set during Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series (ABC at 7:00A ET), before lighting up the first-ever FarmBorough Festival as the city’s inaugural headliner. Additionally, Bentley will be part of an all-star line up for NBC’s annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular two-hour special, airing July 4th at 8:00P ET on NBC.

“It’s a big weekend for country fans in NYC…they got their own festival! And it’s just as big of a deal for me to get to kick the whole thing off,” said Bentley. “The ‘Sounds of Summer’ tour has been a total blast so far, and we’re pumped about getting to party with the fans in Boston and Philly this weekend too.”

Of the new single “Riser,” Billboard notes that Bentley “has spent the past two years trickling out singles from the Grammy-nominated album…but all along, he had the secret weapon of ‘Riser’ in his back pocket.” It has also has been dubbed by CMT as its “favorite song on the album” and the career-defining track is “on the cusp of a movement, a defining brand with which he and his audience can identify” (Rolling Stone).

Bentley’s three weekends into his 2015 SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR, which will continue this week following FarmBorough (6/26) with stops in Boston, MA (6/27) and Camden, NJ (6/28). For a full list of upcoming tour dates and appearances, visit www.dierks.com.
