Regional Media Virden Broadcasting to Bring The Back Road Music Festival to Galva in August of 2014

The Back Road Music Festival, an inaugural event, comes to Henry County, Illinois, this summer 2014.  Galva, IL and the Galva Park District play host to four premier Nashville based musical acts, for one day of country music festival fun.  Proudly presented by Regional Media stations Hog Country 102.5 WJRE and Wiley Park Productions, the Saturday August 16th event will provide a first ever opportunity for West Central Illinois music fans to see and hear their favorite Nashville stars of past and present in Galva, IL.  Please stay tuned in early March for our official talent lineup announcement and more!


The Tri-County area represents most of the hard-working, country-loving small-towns between West Central Illinois' two most prominent metropolises in Peoria & the Quad City Area.  Therefore, we feel that its location and locale make Galva a prime meeting ground for the best fans in all of music!


General admission tickets and V.I.P. passes for this new festival go on sale March 1, 2014, starting at 10 am CT.  All tickets, as well as parking passes, can be purchased at, with an introductory price of $35 for all venues of The Back Road Music Festival. Please check out for any desired information, and we'll see you at the show!
