Upcoming Events

The Back Road Music Festival

What happens when two life long friends, a bartender, and a banker, get a crazy idea? Normally the result doesn’t impress their parents. In this case, it has transformed rural Henry County Illinois for years to come. Specifically, the small town of Galva, population 2,700. Every August thousands flock to see some of the biggest country stars in the business. The festival grounds are unlike any other. The stage rises out of a natural amphitheater surrounded by cornfields, windmills, with a panoramic country view that allows fans to see for miles. In its 7th year, the sense of community couldn’t be more evident. When you come to the back road music festival, you make memories for life, and it feels like home no matter where you are from. By attending the festival, you will also be supporting the long list of charities we support. We take pride in using our platform to help others in need. If you want a safe, family-friendly environment, that helps others then we are the perfect summer festival for you. One ticket, 7 acts, charity, good food, drinks, and a whole lot of #1’s. What are you waiting for?
