Bringing the Community Together: The Greater Purpose of the Festival

The Southern Tier Music Fest is presented by Four Towns Forward, a collaborative effort by the chambers of Afton, Unadilla, Sidney, and Bainbridge. This collective initiative aims to bring the community together and promote the region's tourism, showcasing its unique attractions and fostering local business development.

Headliner Nate Smith

One of the highlights of the festival will be the headliner, Nate Smith, with special guest Lauren Watkins. Smith's rise to fame was catapulted by his viral sensation "Wildfire" on TikTok in 2020. Smith gained prominence on various social media platforms before securing a major record deal and releasing songs like “Whiskey on You” and “World on Fire” to radio.

Local Bands and Performers Take the Stage

The Southern Tier Music Fest will feature a lineup of other talented bands and performers from the region. Acts include Music Mafia, Rylee Lum, Custom Taylor Band, Tailor Made, and Beadle Brothers.
