We expect to see thousands of folk travel up from the south and across the water for the one of a kind event, so get that hotel booked early!

Recently speaking to Downtown Country, event spokesperson Darren Gardiner said: “The Farmers Bash promises to be the ultimate country music event to be staged in Northern Ireland. Its 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.”
