Built from a re-purposed barn, the main stage is located in a natural amphitheater with a large grassy area for audience seating. From the highest kind to the lowliest peasant, who doesn't enjoy a good sit? So bring a blanket or a lawn chair & stay a while, or dance like a dervish till your hearts content (or the knees give out)!
Thurs Aug 11th: Bon Jurke et Amis | The Honorable Spirits | Michael Covel | Y-Not
And Many More!
Main Gate opens Friday at Noon with the first mains stage performers starting at 5pm. Don't be surprised if you hear music at the little stage near by or when walking the trails as random acts of music will happen all over Farm Fest! It is part of the magic!
Early access on Thursday opens at 9am to scheduled volunteers, vendors, booked musicians, & VIP only. If you show up before Friday at noon & you are not one of these individuals, expect to pay the additional VIP admission of $100. There are lots of perks that come with VIP, not just early access, but we will not make exceptions. Thursday is our time to do last minute set up & our special thank you to those that help make Farm Fest possible. All are welcome to this night that includes food & a very special musical guest but you must have the VIP band. Again, no exceptions.
We have a small stage at the Feedbag Café that is perfect for intimate solo, duo & trio acts, but don't be surprised to see a full band there from time to time. Find performers here before the main stage fires up, between main stage sets and late into the night!
This is the newest structure at Farm Fest. It features a covered wood floor and is located in the south east corner of the parking area. We will be having yoga every morning & workshops as well. Acoustic performances & jam sessions are welcome also. We are trying to keep the events here limited to mornings as to not detract from our main stage acts. This is a great place to hide out if it rains or find shelter from the mid day sun. Feel free to use this as a meeting spot for now & music acts will be back in the future.
There will be crafts and creative fun for the young and young at a heart throughout the weekend at the kids’ area. Kids are welcome to use the stage & hold mini concerts, acts or shows as they see fit as well as the play ground equipment of course. Adult supervision is suggested & volunteers will be on site as it is an "old school" playground. We ask that you teach your little ones how to use the equipment safely & to lookout for & help other little ones before letting them have free reign. We want kids to enjoy themselves & have a great experience at Farm Fest, all in as safe a manner as possible. We ask for everyone's help in accomplishing this goal!
Our second performance area is in the woods near the camping area & provides a more intimate performance space. There is a bulletin board at the second stage where artists can sign up for performance times. Stop by and check the board! These will be acoustic performances only for the foreseeable future as not to detract from our main stage acts.
Located in a natural depression in the wooded area, the fire circle is perfect for late night sing-a-longs and storytelling. Bring your friends, bring an instrument, bring a story & enjoy the night till the coals go out!
The drum kiva is located behind the wooded camping area, and provides an intimate venue for rhythm enthusiasts. Stop by any time, but expect the best fun at the drum kiva late in the evening.
