The Back Road Music Festival
August 10, 2024
Galva, Illinois

What happens when two lifelong friends, a bartender and a banker, get a crazy idea? Usually, the result doesn’t impress their parents. In this case, it has transformed rural Henry County, Illinois, for years. Specifically, the small town of Galva has a population of 2,700. Thousands flock to see some of the biggest country stars in the business every August.

The festival grounds are unlike any other. The stage rises out of a natural amphitheater surrounded by cornfields and windmills, with a panoramic country view that allows fans to see for miles.

In its 10th year, the community couldn’t be more evident. When you come to The Back Road music festival, you make life memories, and it feels like home no matter where you are from. Attending the festival will also support the long list of charities we support. We take pride in using our platform to help others in need. We are the perfect summer festival if you want a safe, family-friendly environment that helps others. One ticket, multiple acts, charity, good food, drinks, and many #1s. What are you waiting for? #takeabackroad

Live Music, great food, good times & a family-friendly environment that you will NOT want to miss.

Saturday, August 10, 2024 / Gates open at 2P / Music Begins at 4P.
