Homegrown Music Fest Keeps Growing 


Deep South Entertainment was awarded the bid to book another year at the NC State Fair.  This marks the 4th continuous year for Deep South and features artists with a North Carolina connection. We are the only State Fair in the country that just features artists with a connection to their own State.  Today, we are proud to announce the very diverse 2018 line-up.  

The Homegrown Music Fest features approximately 70 diverse acts for the 2018 fair. Fairgoers can expect to see 125 sets performed across 3 stages for the 11-day run.   Deep South has gone to great lengths to feature artists representing the depth and diversity of talent that we have across the state of North Carolina. In addition to music, local craft beer will be featured and available for sale in Dorton Arena during the nightly shows for the duration of the fair.

“The Homegrown Music Fest is an opportunity to curate a very diverse and unique experience for the Fair attendees. Although we do have many recognizable and notable artists performing, we really endeavor to create an opportunity for people to discover new music at the Fair,” mentions Amy Cox, Senior Vice President of Deep South Entertainment and Project Manager for the NC State Fair.
