We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be joining Willie Nelson and the gang at Farm Aid 2017! This marks the fourth consecutive year that our network will air Farm Aid, and our second time airing it live. “For over three decades, Farm Aid has been one of the top music events in the country—not just for the impressive roster of talent it attracts, but for the American farm families it strengthens and supports,” said Evan Haiman, AXS TV’s Vice President of Programming and Production.
Performers include the mainstay of the event, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds, as well as Sheryl Crow, The Avett Brothers, and other notable artists!
We’re also pleased to say that our viewers are invited to donate to Farm Aid and receive a signature T-shirt.
Tune in Saturday, September 16th, starting at 7/6c!
Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on the land during the 1980s Farm Crisis. Now in its 32ND year, Farm Aid has raised more than $50 million, becoming a food and farm festival that features HOMEGROWN food from family farmers and hands-on agrarian activities, and attracts some of the most influential artists in music, who donate their performances to support and honor family farmers. Nelson is joined on the organization’s board by fellow music legends Young, Mellencamp, and Matthews.
