The concert with a cause has happened every year (except 1988, 1989 and 1991) since its historic 1985 debut at Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Ill., where it began its quest to raise awareness and funds to keep farm families on thier land. This year, for the first time, the festival will take place in East Troy, Wis.
“We’re bringing Farm Aid to the heartland because we need to show the country what’s happening to the people who grow our food and take care of our soil and water,” Mellencamp said in a statement. “We want family farmers to know that we won’t let them go down without a fight. And neither should you–farmers need us, and we need farmers.”
“Everybody in this country should have access to good food,” Matthews added. “And the people produce the best food – our family farmers – should be able to produce it without being afraid of going hungry themselves because they can’t make ends meet. These are the values that bring Farm Aid to Wisconsin this year.”
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Jamey Johnson, Tanya Tucker, Brothers Osborne, Yola, and Particle Kid will also perform, with more artists slated to be announced later this summer.
Farm Aid 2019 will take place on Sept. 21, and tickets will go on pre-sale starting July 10 and become available to the general publicand July 12 via the festial website.
