|This year’s Farm Aid benefit concert will take place at Hersheypark Stadium, Hershey, Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 22. Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews will be joined by Tim Reynolds, Jack Johnson, ALO, Pegi Young & The Survivors, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.
Farm Aid began in 1985 as a benefit concert organised by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young. The annual concerts have since raised more than $40 million for programmes that help farmers thrive.
Farm Aid President, Willie Nelson, says:
|“We’ve built a strong family farm movement to grow our economy, ensure our health and protect our environment. Farm Aid brings these Main Street values to transform the Wall Street-controlled farm and food system. The Farm Aid concert is our chance to shine a spotlight on the independent family farmers who are essential to the well-being of our country.”|
