Jack White and Neil Young will lead the Farm Aid line-up when the event’s latest edition takes place on September 13th in Raleigh, North Carolina with the aim of raising money for family farmers in the United States.
“In North Carolina and across the Southeast, family farmers have struggled to stay on the land, but they have also pioneered new roads to economic sustainability,” Willie Nelson, president of Farm Aid, has said in a statement.
“This region knows the value of its farmers and offers increasing opportunities for new farmers to build a strong regional food system. On the Farm Aid stage Saturday, September 13, we’ll celebrate family farmers and the healthy communities they’re growing for all of us.”
White and Young are joined on the bill by Nelson himself, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jamey Johnson, Delta Rae, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, Carlene Carter, Pegi Young & The Survivors and Insects vs Robots.
