Since 1985, Farm Aid has traveled the country, staging annual concerts and supporting organizations that work locally, regionally and nationally to strengthen family farms. This will remain the case for 2009, but for the first time ever, organizers have chosen to hold the event in Missouri.
On October 4th, Farm Aid will hit to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis for its annual celebration. This year’s lineup is still forthcoming, but Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews are all scheduled to take part it.
Tickets will go on sale July 25th at 10 a.m. CDT and are available exclusively at livenation.com. Prices will be set at $39 for lawn; $44, $54 and $79 for seats; and $169 for a limited number of premium seats.
