The biggest event of the year for country music and jiving fans across the Province has been announced at the official launch of the Farmer’s Bash, which will storm its way into Belfast’s SSE Arena later this year.
Stars Derek Ryan, Lisa McHugh and Robert Mizzell, powered by The Grassmen, who are all topping the bill of the big event, helped stage a hoedown at last week’s launch, giving us flavour of what’s to come at the October 6 gig.
Also in attendance was Ruairi McSorley (aka Frostbit Boy), and The King of Country himself, Big T from Downtown Country, who along with Downtown Radio will be the broadcast media partner for this ‘first of its kind’ event.
Special guests also appearing include Marty Mone, of Hit The Diff fame, and old favourites Hugo Duncan and Country Harmony.
The Farmer’s Bash will take place on October 6, with tickets, priced £28 and £30, on sale from usual outlets now.
This ambitious event, presented by LSFX Productions and sponsored by Newbridge Silver, will be the UK and Ireland’s biggest ever indoor Country Music Dance.
It’s expected to attract thousands of country music and country jiving fans from across Ireland and beyond, who want to see their musical heroes perform at the country party of a lifetime.
Event spokesperson Darren Gardiner said: “The Farmer’s Bash promises to be the ultimate country music event to be staged in Northern Ireland. It’s one massive stage, one massive dance floor and one massive party!
“We are expecting thousands of jiving and country music fans to come along to the SSE Arena on October 6 for a high-octane event of music and dancing as well as a few other surprises and special guests.
“Country music has soared in popularity in recent years, and there is a huge fan base for the music, who want to come together to enjoy themselves, dancing to the music they love.
“The energy and excitement around this event will be something special.
“We have already had a great response to the news we are staging this family-friendly event in Belfast and we are sure tickets are going to sell out fast.”
