WASHINGTON — It’s time to grow better food, one band at a time.
Farm Aid is brings its annual all-day concert to Jiffy Lube Live on September 17 in Bristow, Virginia.
The star-studded lineup includes Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Alabama Shakes, Sturgill Simpson and Jamey Johnson.
Pre-sale begins at noon Wednesday and will end at 11:59 p.m. Sunday — or when tickets sell out.
Ticket rices range from $49.50 to $189.50.
Each person can buy up to four tickets.
The concert was founded in 1985 by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young, who were inspired by the Live Aid benefit concert put on by Bob Dylan and others earlier that same year.
Dave Matthews joined the trio in 2001 to create a four-man board that hosts the annual event of food, music and hands-on activities. Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised more than $50 million to help family farmers across the country while inspiring millions to take part in the Good Food Movement.
