The Music Farm in Charleston, South Carolina, will be renovated and reopened in 2022 as part of a partnership between Live Nation, National Shows 2, and FPC Live. The venue will be booked by Live Nation in collaboration with the NS2 talent management team. The club will be managed and operated by FPC Live, a joint venture between Live Nation and Frank Productions. The club’s capacity will be reduced to 650 people.
Music Farm first opened its doors in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1991, and moved to its current location in 1993. It has hosted a diverse range of headlining acts over the course of its history, including Phish, Wu-Tang Clan, Halestorm, Smashing Pumpkins, Fitz and the Tantrums, Dropkick Murphy’s, and Kid Rock, to name a few notable examples.
In a statement, Grant Lyman, President of Live Nation Southeast, said, “We are thrilled to be bringing The Music Farm back in 2022 with exciting new experiences for artists and fans.” “The Music Farm has been a part of the fabric of the city for decades, and we look forward to building on that legacy as Live Nation assists more artists in connecting with their fans in Charleston,” says the company.
According to NS2 President Darin Lashinsky, “We are delighted to welcome the Music Farm to the NS2 and FPC Live family.” According to the Music Farm, “the Charleston music scene is thriving, and the Music Farm will play an important role in the development of local and national acts.” With a 30-year history of hosting many breakthrough artists, this venue is thrilled to continue expanding its live music offerings while providing guests and performers with a more refined and enjoyable atmosphere.”
The Music Farm has been vacant since the outbreak of the pandemic, and plans for its reopening include the installation of a brand new HVAC system, as well as new lighting and sound systems, among other things.
“I fell in love with live music in that room,” said Charles Carmody, a long-time Music Hall director who grew up cramming into the Farm for big-name shows. “I fell in love with live music in that room,” he added.
“I began going there when I was 13 years old.” I saw some of the best concerts I’ve ever seen, including Against Me!, St. Vincent, Broken Social Scene, and Run the Jewels, among others. I’ve always wanted to give it a shot and see how well I did at programming and running it. It was always the case that “one day if someone doesn’t want to do it, we will do it for them.”
