Written by Warren Ellison on June 15, 2017
This year’s annual “Farm Aid Festival” will take place at the KeyBank Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, September 16th. The concert’s three original founders, Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp, will headline the all-day music and food festival.
The trio organized the first concert in 1985 to bring awareness about the loss of family farms. The event has raised over $50 million since its inception. Dave Matthews joined the Aid Board of Directors in 2001. He also will be performing alongside Tim Reynolds.
Other artists who perform include Jack Johnson, The Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Blackberry Smoke, Valerie June, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Insects vs Robots. More musicians will be announced later this summer. Pre-sale tickets begin today.
