Music Farm received a resounding round of (digital) applause Tuesday after announcing its highly anticipated reopening date via social media.

The beloved music venue will once again open its doors to concertgoers on April 15-16 for a two-night show with local band Susto after closing at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020.

During the two years that the venue remained closed, the building underwent renovations and management changed hands. Music Farm will now be run by Frank Productions, a concert management company that works in tandem with Live Nation and also operates another Ann Street music venue, the Charleston Music Hall. Aside from the physical renovations, the venue will also begin serving food from The Royal American during events.

Music Farm will follow up its Susto show with another concert on April 28 featuring rock band Son Volt and singer-songwriter S.G. Goodman, and a May 1 show presenting soul-pop group Lawrence.

Fans can purchase tickets to any of the three shows starting Fri., Jan. 14 at 10 a.m. via Sign up for the Music Farm’s mailing list to receive ticket presale codes.

The venue will implement COVID-19 protocols similar to those of its sister venue The Charleston Music Hall. Attendees must show proof of vaccination or a negative test result within 72 hours of the event.
