Midwest Radio Presents

“…you guys have created something wonderful … down in Kansas City I walked into a big room full of genuinely friendly, supportive, and PHENOMENALLY talented people, all interested in creating a vibrant community and extending a helping hand to their fellow musicians.”

 – Rev. Judi Hendricks,
FARMette 2017 attendee

We had so much fun and we were just truly blown away by the supportive and friendly FARM community.”

– The Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers, 2016 Official Showcase Artist

“We are America’s Heartland, and our conference exudes a certain relaxed, charming, and simple approach to Folk and roots music …This community comes together once a year and it is a treasured time. Come back ! OR, join us as a first-timer. Either way, I think you’ll be recharged in ways that will surprise you.”

–  Tim Grimm, Songwriter, Performer, Actor
2014 Key Note Speaker

“FARM made me see and feel that I’m part of a songwriting community. This was such an exciting and a happy realization. I came away with renewed energy and resolve for my own work, and who doesn’t need that?”

– Michael P. Smith, Songwriter, Actor, 2011 Key Note Speaker

This Thursday Night Showcase provides invited Midwest Radio DJs the opportunity to select an artist they would like to introduce to the FARM community.

the Selection Process

  • The FARM Board of Directors will invite DJs to select a performer for the showcase.
  • The showcase coordinators will compile a list of artists who would like to be considered. However, DJs are not required to select from this list.
  • Because we’re trying to raise awareness of FARM, DJs are encouraged to recruit an artist who they believe could benefit from the experience and exposure – preferably one who has never attended FARM.
  • The performer may not have performed in any prior FARM Official Showcase or DJ / Venue Showcase.
  • Selected artists MUST register for the entire conference. (Remember that registration is discounted for all first-timers.)

More information will be available in June.
