Farm Aid's 35th anniversary concert Farm Aid 2020 will take place on September 26th as a virtual at-home festival, according to Jambase. Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews, and John Mellencamp will once again headline the three-hour event, which starts at 8 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on AXS TV and streamed via YouTube. Proceeds will benefit U.S. family farmers with $60 million raised since its inception in 1985.
The is Farm Aid's second all digital fundraiser with last April's At Home With Farm Aid special, proving the event's message still carried over successfully without a major outdoor event.
Farm Aid co-founder said in a statement, “This pandemic and so many other challenges have revealed how essential family farmers and ranchers are to the future of our planet. Farm Aid 2020 is going to give the whole country a chance to learn about the important work of farmers and how they’re contributing to our well-being, beyond bringing us good food.”
