Festival at the Farm is a one-of-a-kind event bringing all ages together for live music, local food and drink, backyard games and an on-site farmers market featuring local farmers, non-profits and inspired craft vendors. The festival will feature two stages of nationally-known artists alongside some of Boston’s best local acts. Amos Lee and Dawes top the line-up for the weekend-long event along with Mandolin Orange, Amy Helm, The Wild Reeds, The Suitcase Junket, Caitlyn Smith, Update Rubdown, Will Dailey, Jesse Dee, The Silks, and Ali McGuirk.  Additional acts will be announced in May. 

Festival at the Farm has also teamed up with Kids Really Rock to present a very special kids concert each day.  The Kids Really Rock All-Star Jam will feature Karen K. and the Jitterbugs alongside a who’s who of New England Kids musical artists. 

“Festival at the Farm just keeps getting better every year!  We are incredibly excited about this year’s musical line-up and our partnership with Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs to bring fans of all ages together for a weekend of great live music and local food.” said James Macdonald, founder of Six Chair Productions. “We can’t wait for the weekend to begin!”

Inspired by Pete and Gerry’s free range hens, who have ample room to roam on the farm, the Free Range Kids Zone will feature a host of interactive games and activities including face-painting, storytelling, and magic shows, as well as hen petting with Pete and Gerry’s Organic hens and Meet-A-Farmer, providing families the opportunity to interact with a Pete and Gerry’s Organic farmer.  

Six Chair Productions also announced that they have set a goal to help provide 100,000 meals to those in need through support of the Greater Boston Food Bank.    As a part of this effort, a portion of every ticket sold will be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank and Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs will donate one dozen eggs for every ticket sold. Fans will be able to take part in the fundraising by making online donations at ticketing checkout as well as through select activities at the festival.

“Festival at the Farm is in perfect alignment with the core values and identity of Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs - a family-led organization that prioritizes local, organic and humane food,” said Jesse Laflamme, CEO of Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs. “We had such an amazing time last year and are excited to be joining forces with Festival at the Farm again, while also supporting the Greater Boston Food Bank in the fight against hunger in the Boston community.”

Commonwealth Cambridge owner and chef Nookie Postal will return to Festival at the Farm in 2018 to create a farm-to-table dining experience in the festival’s VIP area.  VIP ticket holders will also enjoy preferred concert viewing and a private bar and lounge along with other amenities.

Early Bird tickets for the festival will go on sale on April 12, 2018 at www.festivalatthefarm.com.  Early Bird general admission two-day passes are priced affordably at $75 and Early Bird VIP Passes are $175 for the weekend.   During the Early Bird ticketing, tickets for kids aged 3-12 are free.  Infants and toddlers aged 2 and under will not need a ticket for the event.  Ticket prices will increase in May after the entire festival talent lineup is revealed.
