Farm Aid was founded with one simple goal: support farmers and strengthen America. In 1985, this idea was brought to life by Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and John Mellencamp when they organized the first Farm Aid concert to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep families on the farm land. Thirty-one years (and over $50 million in donations) later, Willie, Neil, and John are back for another star studded concert for a good cause!
Filmed in September in Bristow, Virginia, Farm Aid 2016, brings together an eclectic mix of performers to celebrate America’s family farmers and the food that they grow. Join Farm Aid’s founders, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and John Mellencamp, along with Dave Matthews, Alabama Shakes, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Margo Price, and Jamey Johnson featuring Alison Krauss for an entire evening of music and celebration.
