Farm Aid 2016 will mix country, rock and soul when the benefit concert comes to Bristow, Virginia’s Jiffy Lube Live on Sept. 17.
Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Carlene Carter and Insects Vs. Robots will also perform. As in years past, Matthews will be performing an acoustic set with multi-instrumentalist Tim Reynolds.
Since its 1985 inception, Farm Aid has raised more than $50 million to support family farmers.
“Folks are educating themselves about where and how food is grown – they’re hungry for the truth,” Nelson said in a statement. “Family farmers bring us good food, protect our soil and water, and strengthen our country. The Farm Aid concert is a day for us to honor that truth and keep working for family farmers.”
Tickets go on sale Monday (June 27) at 10 a.m. ET through Live Nation.
