About

TBRMF

What happens when two lifelong 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 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 8th 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 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 for you if you want a safe, family-friendly environment that helps others. One ticket, multiple acts, charity, good food, drinks, and a lot of #1’s. What are you waiting for?
