Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young to perform at Farm Aid

UPI News Service, 08/02/2010 

Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews are to headline this year's U.S. music and food festival, organizers said.

The 25th anniversary fundraiser is to take place Oct. 2 at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Farm Aid founders Nelson and Mellencamp joined Executive Director Carolyn Mugar by webcast at an on-field news conference Monday at the home of the Milwaukee Brewers to reveal details about the all-day music festival.

"For 25 years, Farm Aid has worked to keep family farmers on the land," Nelson said. "This anniversary concert is a chance for everyone to join with Farm Aid to support the family farmers who are growing hope for America, through the good food they produce, the economies they build, and their care for the soil and water. Family farmers are the backbone of our country, and right now we need them more than ever."

Mellencamp said Milwaukee is a perfect place to celebrate Farm Aid's silver anniversary.

"Midwest farmers share the same struggle as family farmers across the country," hesaid. "They are survivors, and they're on the land creating solutions for America's most pressing issues. Since 1985, Farm Aid has been a way for everyone in this country to step up and be part of the solution, because nobody is going to solve these problems on their own. It's going to take all of us working together."
