Soak Up Three Days of Music Asheville Barnaroo 2017!

September 4th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Asheville Barnaroo 2017The 9th annual Asheville Barnaroo is just around the corner: 3 days of non-stop live music scheduled for September 29th through October 1st, 2017 at Franny’s Farm in Leicester, NC.

If you did a double take when you saw “Barnaroo” that’s because the Asheville Barnaroo is a direct response to the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The Barnaroo was started by a group of friends who were miffed that they couldn’t get into Bonnaroo because they were underage. Like Buddha and the mountain, when they couldn’t go to the music festival, they decided to bring the music festival to them. And so much the luckier for the rest of us!
