Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews are back once again for the latest installment of Farm Aid.

Started in 1985 as a way to raise money for America’s farming families.  This year’s Farm Aid will be taking place September 16 in Burgettstown, Pa. at the Keybank Pavilion, and the lineup will also feature Tim Reynolds (who’s billed with Matthews), Jack Johnson, The Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Blackberry Smoke, Valerie June, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Insects Vs. Robots.

The festival will also feature local and organic food concessions, as well as various farm activities and information on how family farmers are protecting our water and supplying the country with their goods.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 23 at 10 AM.  For complete details, head over to FarmAid.org.
