FarmBorough, New York City's first-ever major country music festival, brought tens of thousands of fans to Randall's Island for three days and nights of nonstop hits. Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley headlined with high-energy sets, while over on the Next From Nashville Stage, newer acts proved future marquee leaders. Contributing photographer Chona Kasinger shuffled from stage to stage to get live shots of artists including Kip Moore, Sturgill Simpson and Maddie and Tae, and also went backstage between sets to coax acts including Bentley, Joe Nichols and Lindsay Ell to strike a pose. Flip through our best onstage and backstage photos from the inaugural (and likely first of many) FarmBorough Festival.
