Farm Aid will return to Raleigh, NC’s Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek—where the festival was held in 2014—on September 24th, 2022 with a lineup featuring Willie Nelson, Margo Price, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, John Mellencamp, and more. Proceeds from the annual benefit concert will support family farms.
Chris Stapleton, Sheryl Crow, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, Allison Russell, Charley Crockett, Brittney Spencer, and Particle Kid (Micah Nelson) round out the Farm Aid 2022 lineup. Farm Aid board member Neil Young will be absent from this year’s event. Young recently responded to a letter from a fan saying, “I will not be at Farmaid this year. I am not ready for that yet. I don’t think it is safe in the pandemic,” adding, “I miss it very much.”
“Everywhere we go, we hear from festivalgoers that there’s nothing quite like the Farm Aid experience,” said Farm Aid Executive Director Carolyn Mugar. “Farmers and eaters are inspired and empowered at the intersection of music and family farm food to support the source of our food — family farmers — and to join farmers in fighting for our soil and water.”
Pre-sale tickets for Farm Aid 2022 will be available Wednesday, July 27th at 10 a.m. ET until 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 28th. Tickets will then go on sale to the general public on Saturday, July 30th at 10 a.m. ET. For more information, visit the Farm Aid website.
