FULL SLATE OF FARM AID 2013 ACTS REVEALED
As we reported earlier this month, Farm Aid will return to New York for
the first time since 2007 this September, when the annual benefit concert takes place at
Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY on September 21.
We already knew that this year's lineup will feature Farm Aid co-founders Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp as well as
Farm Aid regulars Neil
Young and Dave
Matthews and today more acts have been revealed. Jack Johnson, Amos Lee, Kacey
Musgraves, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, Bahamas, JD & The
Straight Shot and Pegi Young & The Survivors have been added to the Farm Aid 2013 lineup.
In addition, Tim Reynolds will perform with Dave Matthews at the event.
The general onsale will take place Friday, June 28, at 10 a.m. EDT. Farm Aid is the
longest running series of benefit concerts in America. Organizers have raised over $43
million to benefit family farmers. The first Farm Aid concert took place on September 22,
1985 in Champaign, IL. Last year's concert was held at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, PA.
