We are so honored by the response we’ve received for Farm Aid 2017. Tickets sold out in less than 24 hours! That’s just about 23,000 tickets.
If you missed your chance to get tickets, we are very sorry. We encourage you to tune in to our webcast on September 16 at farmaid.org so you don’t miss any of the incredible music.
A Chance to Win A VIP Trip
You still have a chance to be part of this incredible day for family farmers. We’re working with CrowdRise to give one lucky Farm Aid supporter a VIP trip to Farm Aid 2017. You’ll get a pair of VIP tickets, a backstage tour, 2-nights hotel lodging and $500 to cover travel expenses. You’ll even get to announce one of the bands live on stage!
Every $10 donation is an entry to win, so $50 is 5 entries. Proceeds go to benefit Farm Aid’s mission to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America.
The best thing about selling out so quickly is that we have more time to focus on making the concert the best it can be and sharing stories of the innovative farmers in the concert region. For instance, check out our first Pittsburgh-area Farmer Hero story about Tara Rockacy, who took over her grandparents’ farm just outside Pittsburgh city limits.
When asked why Farm Aid goes where it goes, Willie has often said, “We go where we’re wanted.” Well, Western Pennsylvania, you’ve showed us how much you love family farmers and how much you want this celebration of the hard work they do for all of us!
We also want to give a special thanks to the ticket buyers from all over the country (and even the world), who are making the trek to Pittsburgh. Thank you for your support of family farmers and Farm Aid. We look forward to seeing you in September!
