Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley will help New York City make history when they headline FarmBorough this summer, marking the Big Apple's first-ever country music festival.
Set for Randall's Island June 26-28, FarmBorough will also feature performances by Dwight Yoakam, Sturgill Simpson, Wade Bowen, Brandy Clark, Maddie & Tae, Kip Moore, Randy Houser, Dustin Lynch, Jon Pardi, Cassadee Pope, Joe Nichols, Charlie Worsham, RaeLynn, Chris Stapleton, Lindsay Ell, Dallas Smith, Canaan Smith, the Cadillac Three, Striking Matches and the Railers. And undiscovered talent will get the spotlight with the festival's "Next From Nashville" stage.
"Country singers playing in New York is always a big deal, whether they're playing the smallest club or bar, or Madison Square Garden," says Bentley. "It's a big deal to play here, so to combine that with a country music festival… that's what we do in the summertime, we play a lot of fairs and festivals. To have one now in the city really justifies the moment that country music is having."
