Man, it’s a good day.

Why, you may ask?

Because Farm Aid is officially BACK.

The all day music festival has been providing stacked lineups since 1985, all to support the work of farming families. And for this year’s event, it’s returning to Noblesville, Indiana on Saturday, September 23rd at Ruoff Music Center.

Of course, we’ll have our usual performances from Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews (alongside Tim Reynolds), and Margo Price.

Other performances will include the likes of Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros featuring The Wolfpack, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson, Allison Russell, The String Cheese Incident, and Particle Kid.

Willie Nelson himself weighed in on this year’s event:

“Family farmers have the solutions to some of our toughest challenges. As we face a changing climate, farmers in Indiana, across the Midwest and all over the country are farming in ways that create more resilient farms to build healthy soils and protect our water.”

John Mellencamp also weighed in:

“We are honored and excited to bring the Farm Aid experience back to Indiana. My home state holds deep meaning for me and for the generations of family farmers who have dedicated their lives to caring for the Earth and bringing us good food.”

Every year, Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Margo Price host an annual music festival to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers.

In the past 35 years, Farm Aid has raised more than $70 million to support various programs that help farmers across the nation.

This is gonna be a good’n.
