CAMBRIDGE, MA (CelebrityAccess) — Willie Nelson and the organizers for Farm Aid announced that the long-running benefit concert will return to celebrate its 30th year with a concert on September 19.
"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," Nelson said in a press statement posted on the fest's website.
With a board of directors that features Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, Farm Aid is the longest running benefit concert series in America, raising more than $45 million to help family farmers over its history.
