F.A.R.M.fest Lineup Was Worth The Wait
F.A.R.M.fest, which is short for Future of Artistic & Revolutionary Minds, is back for its 6th year. Returning to the beautiful Paradise Lakes campground in Hammonton, New Jersey on July 20th-21st, this year is set to be the most ambitious year yet. With only a few weeks until the event and the seemingly daily additions to the festival lineup, there was much speculation from the fans that this festival would not be happening this year. As always, the revolutionary minds behind FARMfest have managed to put together an incredibly diverse lineup that is different from anything we have seen before at this festival. Though the lineup has been sized down significantly from previous years, it still packs just as big of a punch as it always has.
In addition to the long-awaited lineup drop, just over a month before the event date, the creator of F.A.R.M.fest, Patrick Bartnett, made sure to address its loyal fans about the delay. Patrick announced, “With all the time, effort, and consideration that went into curating this lineup, we hope that it was well worth the wait. Thank you to the #FARMily for being patient and always sticking with us. This one’s for you.”
F.A.R.M.fest has just revealed that they will be hosting a Pre-Party on Thursday the 19th with only a $20 entrance fee. The Pre-Party brings in a heavy bass music lineup with Esseks, Mystic Grizzly, Face Plant and Brainrack, who will be returning for his 3rd year. The craziness only begins there as the rest of the lineup features almost every sub-genre of electronic music, as well as a healthy dose of live music from jam bands and even hip-hop artists such as Talib Kweli. Other headliners for this event include sets from bass music legends such as Ill Gates, who will be performing live, as well as Shadow People (Truth & Youngsta), Minnesota, and the up and coming Ivy Lab who recently opened up for Bassnectar at his Spring Gathering in Chicago. A unique feature of the lineup is Badfish, who will be playing a tribute set to Sublime. There will also be live music from reggae rock band, Tomorrows Bad Seeds and jam bands such as Conspirator and Space Bacon. Hailing all the way from Bristol, UK Koan Sound will be bringing the electro-funk/ glitch hop sound, along with the likes of Break Science. With this great lineup, F.A.R.M.fest will surely be less of a farm, more like a zoo.
