Farm Aid Comes to Hersheypark
Farm Aid 2012’s concert comes to our area this year: It will be held on September 22 at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Each year, Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews headline a Farm Aid concert to bring together a wide variety of musicians, farmers and fans for one mission: keeping family farmers on their land. Farm Aid is the longest running benefit concert series in America, raising more than $39 million to help family farmers thrive all over the country while inspiring millions of people to learn about the Good Food movement.
Tickets for Farm Aid 2012 are available at Livenation.com, Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster outlets, GIANT Center Box Office, and by phone at 800-745-3000.
The Farm Aid 2012 Lineup includes Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds, Kenny Chesney, Jack Johnson, ALO, Pegi Young & The Survivors, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. As Willie Nelson says, “The fight to save family farms isn't just about farmers. It's about making sure that there is a safe and healthy food supply for all of us. It's about jobs, from Main Street to Wall Street. It's about a better America.”
