Farm Aid 2021 is officially slated for September 25th in Hartford, Connecticut.
For those who aren’t familiar, Farm-Aid consists of board members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, Dave Matthews, and Margo Price, as they join forces to raise money and awareness for struggling farmers across America.
To date, the annual concert has raised over $60 million for United States farmers.
After going virtual last year (Covid…), Nelson is stoked to get things rolling:
“The experience of the past 18 months has reminded us how much we need each other. I’m so glad we can come together again at Farm Aid 2021.
When we combine music, family farmers and good food, we have the power to grow the kind of agriculture that strengthens all of us.”
Oh yeah, and the lineup as of right now is pretty damn elite.
The initial lineup includes the likes of:
Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, Margo Price, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Betty Lavette, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Allison Russell, Particle Kid, and Ian Mellencamp.
