Farm Aid 2020 Live Stream to Feature Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton, Margo Price & More

The 35th anniversary Farm Aid celebration, dubbed Farm Aid 2020 On The Road, will be live streamed on Sept. 26.

In addition to performances from Farm Aid founders Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and board member Dave Matthews, the lineup includes Chris Stapleton, Margo Price, Bonnie Raitt, Brandi Carlile, Nathaniel Rateliff, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and more.

“This pandemic and so many other challenges have revealed how essential family farmers and ranchers are to the future of our planet,” says Willie in a press release. “Farm Aid 2020 is going to give the whole country a chance to learn about the important work of farmers and how they’re contributing to our well-being, beyond bringing us good food.”

Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on the land. Farm Aid, which has raised nearly $60 million to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to keep family farmers on the land.

Farm Aid On The Road will be streamed via FANS.com on Saturday, Sept. 26, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.
