The longest running benefit concert series in America, Farm Aid, is returning to be bigger and better than ever for the celebration of their 30th year.
Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews have made it their annual mission to bring musicians, fans, and farmers together by headlining a festival whichÂ has raised over $45 million dollars to teach people about the Good Food Movement – healthy, honest food from caring people in a time when more and more seek the truth behindÂ what they eat.
“The first Farm Aid concert featured more than 50 artists on one stage. In the 29 years since, hundreds more artists have given their time and talent to support family farmers. This year, we would like to invite even more artists to join us onstage as we celebrate family farm agriculture.” â€“â€“ Willie Nelson
“The legacy of Farm Aid is twofold: in the change weâ€™ve made in our farm and food system, and in the rich musical record of concerts held since 1985. The list of artists who have played on the Farm Aid stage is a whoâ€™s who of the best artists of our time.” â€“â€“ John Mellencamp
Farm Aid donates to family farmersÂ who provide good food in order for these farmers to thrive, creating the need for new farmers, and promoting positive connections between farmers and eaters for the 30th year in a row, making it the longest running charity music festival in America! Support this festival and support good food for all.
The Farm Aid 2015 concert is scheduled later this year on September 19. More details will be announced on Farm Aid’s site as they become available.
