About the Concert

Each year, Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews headline a Farm Aid concert to bring together a wide variety of musicians, farmers and fans for one mission: keeping family farmers on their land. Farm Aid is the longest running benefit concert series in America, raising more than $45 million to help family farmers thrive all over the country while inspiring millions of people to learn about the Good Food movement.

Farm Aid 2014

Farm Aid is coming to Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 13! The concert lineup features Willie Nelson & Family, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, Jack White and more.

Farm Aid 2014 is an all-day music and food festival, and will feature a unique lineup of artists and genres and will offer concert-goers family farm-identified, local and organic foods with its own HOMEGROWN Concessions®. In Farm Aid's HOMEGROWN Village, attendees will have the chance to meet farmers, engage in hands-on food and farm activities, and learn about the ways family farmers are enriching our soil, protecting our water and growing our economy, in addition to bringing us good food for good health.

Food Drive

Farm Aid is partnering with The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina to help meet the needs of the hungry in 34 North Carolina counties by collecting non-perishable food items from concertgoers at the main entrances to the venue. Concertgoers can bring non-perishable food and non-food items that are in boxes, cans or plastic bottles (no glass). Suggested donation items include canned tuna and protein, canned fruits and vegetables, cereal, whole grain pasta and rice, and peanut butter. Non-food items, such as personal hygiene products and paper products, are also needed.

The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina for over 33 years. Last year, the Food Bank distributed over 53 million pounds of food and non-food essentials. Through partnerships with local growers and packers, the Food Bank distributed over 16 million pounds of fresh produce last year, a figure that has more than doubled over the past 4 years. Learn more on their website.
