The concert will take place at Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers and will also include Dave Matthews Band. A number of other acts will also be added. Tickets go on sale this Friday, Aug. 6, to Farm Aid Members and Aug. 14 to the general public. Prices range from $97.50-$39.50. The concert will air on DirecTV.
Farm Aid’s first benefit concert took place in Champaign, Ill., in 1985 as a way to help the family farmers, who were being pushed out by corporate farmers. Over the last quarter century, the annual concerts have raised more than $37 million to support organizations such as the Good Food Movement.
