Farm Aid 2014 details

Farm Aid 2014 will be held at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, North Carolina on Sept. 13. The lineup features Willie Nelson & Family, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, Jack White, Jamey Johnson, Delta Rae, Carlene Carter and more.

Started in 1985, the all-day music and food festival, and will feature a unique lineup of artists and genres and will offer concert-goers family farm-identified, local and organic foods with its own homegrown concessions. Attendees will have the chance to meet farmers, engage in hands-on food and farm activities, and learn about the ways family farmers are enriching our soil, protecting our water and growing our economy, in addition to bringing us good food for good health.

"In North Carolina and across the Southeast, family farmers have struggled to stay on the land, but they have also pioneered new roads to economic sustainability. This region knows the value of its farmers and offers increasing opportunities for new farmers to build a strong regional food system. On the Farm Aid stage, we'll celebrate family farmers and the healthy communities they're growing for all of us." -- Willie Nelson

"There is a fair-like feeling when you go to Farm Aid. All day long, people are performing onstage and food from family farmers is being served. It's a great occasion for families to come listen to great music and teach their children about where their food comes from. We're proud to bring Farm Aid 2014 to North Carolina for the first time to feature the family farmers whose hard work and innovations are essential for all of us." -- John Mellencamp
