Willie Nelson and fellow Farm Aid founders Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews will host the 24th annual Farm Aid at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, WI on September 21st. The initial lineup of performers includes Brothers Osborne, Margo Price, Bonnie Raitt, Tanya Tucker, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Yola and Nelson's son Micah Nelson's alter-ego, Particle Kid.
Willie said, “With devastating weather, low prices and harmful farm and trade policies, America’s family farmers are facing immense challenges to hold on to their farms. It’s not right . . . family farmers are essential for all of us. By bringing our festival to the heart of the struggle, we will stand side by side with farmers. At Farm Aid 2019, we’ll highlight solutions and show our support for family farmers’ contributions to our health, economy and environment.”
Tickets for Farm Aid 2019 will go on sale on Friday (July 12th) at 10 a.m. CT at LiveNation.com.
