"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," said Brian O'Connell Live Nation President of Country Touring. "Having the heavyweight power of such huge and distinct names as well 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."
"We made history last year by launching New York City's first ever major country music festival," said co-founder and partner at Founders Entertainment, Jordan Wolowitz. "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."
The first year of FarmBorough drew more than 40,000 people.
