This year, the iconic Farm Aid music festival and fundraiser will take place September 24th in Raleigh’s Coast Credit Union Music Park.
Each year, Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Margo Price host a Farm Aid festival to bring together a wide variety of artists, farmers and fans for one mission: keeping family farmers on the land.
The lineup this year has some Americana favorites and also iconic host Willie Nelson. Farm Aid 2022 will reunite family farmers and musician activists, with performances by Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson & Family, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, and Margo Price, as well as Chris Stapleton, Sheryl Crow, Lukas Nelson, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Allison Russell, Charley Crockett, Brittney Spencer, and Particle Kid.
Newcomers Spencer, Russell, and Crockett are MUST SEE at the fest, as are Nelson’s kids Lukas and Micah-so don’t just hit the sets of Stapleton, Crow, Nelson, Mellencamp, or others. Check out our brand new Spotify Playlist for Farm Aid 2022 to get you in the mood with tracks from all the artists in the lineup.
