Farm Aid 2011 Update - More Artists Added!
07.07.2011 - In just over a month, Farm Aid 2011 will be held at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City, KS on Saturday, August 13th. Farm Aid Board Members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews will headline the event.
Farm Aid just announced more artists performing including: Jason Mraz, Jamey Johnson, Jakob Dylan, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Will Dailey & the Rivals, Robert Francis, Pegi Young & the Survivors, Rebecca Pidgeon, Billy Joe Shaver and John Trudel.
"Farm Aid is a movement inspired not only by the passion of Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews, but also by the more than 400 artists who have donated their performances at our shows over the years," said Carolyn Mugar, executive director of Farm Aid. "This year, we are thrilled to welcome back several familiar faces to the Farm Aid stage as well as some first-timers for what is sure to be a remarkable day of music, food and inspiration."
The all-day festival will be a celebration of music, family farmers and good food and will again feature HOMEGROWN concessions — family farm-identified, local and organic foods. Farm Aid's HOMEGROWN Village will showcase hands-on activities that give concertgoers a chance to meet farmers, get their hands dirty and learn how family farmers are protecting our land and water, as well as connecting us to our roots.
