Farm Aid 2012 will feature performances by Farm Aid President Willie Nelson and fellow board members John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews – with Tim Reynolds – as well as Jack Johnson, ALO, Pegi Young & The Survivors, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.
“We’ve built a strong family farm movement to grow our economy, ensure our health and protect our environment. Farm Aid brings these Main Street values to transform the Wall Street-controlled farm and food system,” said Nelson. “The Farm Aid concert is our chance to shine a spotlight on the independent family farmers who are essential to the well-being of our country.”
The signature music and food festival will feature Farm Aid’s Homegrown Concessions – family farm-identified, local and organic foods. Farm Aid’s Homegrown Village will give concertgoers a chance to meet farmers, engage in hands-on food and farm activities and learn about the ways family farmers are enriching our soil, protecting water and growing the economy.
Tickets range from $35.75 to $99.75 and go on sale Friday, July 13, at 10 a.m. EDT. For venue information, visit www.hersheyparkstadium.com.
