Willie Nelson’s exclusive SiriusXM channel, Willie’s Roadhouse (Ch. 59), will broadcast the 33rd annual Farm Aid concert in its entirety live from Hartford, Conn. on Saturday, September 22 from 12 pm to 11 pm ET.

In addition to performances from Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews (with Tim Reynolds), this year’s lineup boasts sets from a number of other artists.

Don’t miss performances from Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Kacey Musgraves, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Jamey Johnson, Margo Price, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Particle Kid, and Ian Mellencamp, along with backstage interviews with artists and farmers hosted by Dallas Wayne.

The nation’s longest-running concert-for-a-cause, Farm Aid has raised more than $53 million dollars over the past three decades to help grow the promise of farmers and the food they produce to build strong communities.

Not since 1985, when the first Farm Aid benefit concert was staged, have America’s family farmers been so threatened — by economics, politics and nature.

A multi-year slump in farm prices has slashed farm income by more than 50 percent since 2013, due to rising input costs, growing debt, and tightening credit, among other factors. This economic impact has been made worse by an unprecedented sequence of hurricanes, including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and now Florence, which has pummeled America’s farmland.

Now is the time to join Farm Aid’s musicians and support American family farms. For more information on the concert and how to support Farm Aid, visit
