Farm Aid has announced that it will be returning this year at the Xfinity Theatre, in Hartford, Conn., on Sept. 25. Farm Aid did a virtual festival during the pandemic, and this year they’re excited to return.
“The experience of the past 18 months has reminded us how much we need each other… I’m so glad that music is bringing us all back together at Farm Aid 2021 to celebrate family farmers,” said Willie Nelson, Farm Aid President and Founder in a statement. “When we combine music, family farmers and good food, we have the power to grow the kind of agriculture that strengthens all of us.”
The 2021 lineup includes Willie Nelson & Family, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, and Margo Price–who are all Farm Aid Board Members–as well as, Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Bettye LaVette, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Allison Russell, Particle Kid and Ian Mellencamp.
Farm Aid’s concessions are from family farms, that are local and organic. The festival also is a huge proponent of zero waste and works with HOMEGROWN Concessions® to ensure this.
