Farm Aid 2013 will be held at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, New York on September 21. Farm Aid, a non-profit organization, brings a wide variety of musicians, farmers and fans together to help farmers remain on their land. Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the family farm system of agriculture.

“The Farm Aid benefit concert takes place each year thanks to the generosity of artists who donate their talent to raise awareness about the crucial need we have for family farmers on the land,” said Carolyn Mugar, executive director of Farm Aid. “We are thrilled to have an eclectic lineup this year that includes returning artists, as well as artists new to the Farm Aid stage. Together, Farm Aid concertgoers and artists are changing our food system!”

Farm Aid's all-star lineup this year includes Dave Matthews with guitarist Tim Reynolds, Jack Johnson, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Amos Lee, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and many more. Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday, June 28 and range in price from $45 to $150.

Funds raised from the music and food festival will go toward helping farmers remain on their lands. Farm Aid seeks to give concertgoers a true understanding of why family farm agriculture is so important. There will be hands-on activities, music, and a focus on homegrown concessions that showcase local, organic, sustainable and humanely-raised family-farm food.
