Good news for all you country fans in New York City: a brand new three-day country music festival is coming to Randall's Island June 26 to 28, and the headliners are some of Nashville's biggest stars.
Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley, alongside some of country music's brightest talents including Kip Moore, Randy Houser, Dustin Lynch, Cassadee Pope, Joe Nichols, Raelynn and Brandy Clark, will be hitting the stage in NYC at the end of next month, and they couldn't be more excited.
"I’ve always loved New York," Bentley told The Huffington Post. "I think any country artist, no matter how strong into country they may be, when they first go to New York City, I think everyone just falls in love with it. There’s so much energy in that city, it’s just electric. I always come away with my batteries totally recharged."
Bentley and the other singers are looking forward to not only performing for the Big Apple's country fans, but are pumped to stop by some of their favorite places in the city, including Ray's Pizza, Emilio's Ballato, Catch and Brooklyn Bowl:
"Country music has evolved, and the festival really reflects the modern edge and the popularity of it and the mainstream-ness of it," Bentley told HuffPost. "So even though it’s the very first time for Farmborough, it will be sworn in from the get-go and people will be itching to buy their tickets for next year."
The Farmborough Country Music Festival runs June 26, 27 and 28 at Randall's Island in New York.
