Neil Young, Dave Matthews, Bonnie Raitt to Headline Farm Aid 2019
 
The show, also featuring John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson, heads to East Troy, Wisconsin in September

Farm Aid is coming to East Troy, Wisconsin’s Alpine Valley Music Theater on September 21st. The lineup includes Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews in addition to Bonnie Raitt, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Margo Price, Jamey Johnson, Tanya Tucker, Brothers Osborne, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Yola, and Particle Kid.

“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,” John 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.”

Farm Aid 2019: 10 Best Things We Saw

From Bonnie Raitt’s 1980s revival set to Neil Young’s jam with Willie Nelson, we look back at the highlights of the Wisconsin-held fest

Getting 37,000 people to a remote, rural amphitheater in East Troy, Wisconsin, for Farm Aid isn’t hard when the bill features Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Luke Combs, Bonnie Raitt, John Mellencamp, and several other big names. Getting them to stay for 12 hours in a downpour that turned the packed lawn (where the vast majority of people sat) into a sea of mud is much harder. It required a pretty spectacular show, one that left people so stunned they stayed put hour after hour even though most of them couldn’t see the stage and had to watch the show on giant monitors while crammed up against soaked, mud-caked strangers.

Would have loved to be there. Neil Young is always the biggest draw for me, but the rest of those artists are phenomenal too.

They had it free on YouTube. Neil’s set was pretty short but good.
