Willie Nelson has shared that the 2022 Farm Aid festival is set for Sept. 24, and has also revealed the location and the lineup for the one-day food and music festival.
Farm Aid 2022 will take place at Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek in Raleigh, N.C. In addition to Nelson, performers for the 2022 festival include Nelson’s fellow Farm Aid Board of Director members John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews (with Tim Reynolds) and Margo Price. Other performers include Chris Stapleton, Sheryl Crow, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson & the Promise of the Real, Allison Russell, Charley Crockett, Brittney Spencer and Particle Kid.
Farm Aid’s mission is to celebrate and support local farmers, and festival-goers will have a chance to sample products from local farms via the festival’s Homegrown Concessions. The event also has a Homegrown Village, where fans can learn about farming through exhibits, demonstrations and more. The first Farm Aid festival was organized by Nelson, Mellencamp and Neil Young in 1985. Matthews was added to the Board of Directors in 2001 and Price joined in 2021. The non-profit organization has raised more than $64 million since its inception.
Tickets for the 2022 Farm Aid festival go on sale Saturday (July 30) at 10AM ET. For more details about this year’s music and food festival, head here: www.farmaid.org/festival
