As previously reported, the event will be held Sept. 30 in Camden, N.J., and will feature Farm Aid principals Neil Young, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews.
The bill will be rounded out by reggae act Steel Pulse, polka legend Jimmy Sturr, Steve Earle and his wife Allison Moorer, Shelby Lynne, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Arlo Guthrie, Pauline Reese and Danielle Evin.
To date, Farm Aid has raised more than $29 million in support of family farms, locally grown food and fair pricing. The Camden location was chosen due to the high amount of farmers' markets in the surrounding area.
Young is winding down a summer tour with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, which plays tonight (Aug. 31) in Auburn Hills, Mich. He will also host and perform at the 20th annual Bridge School Benefit, set for Oct. 21-22 in Mountain View, Calif. The rest of the lineup for those gigs have yet to be announced.
