Yesterday we were happy to announce some new artists for Farm Aid 2009 Presented by Horizon Organic: Jason Mraz, Wilco, Jamey Johnson, and Phosphorescent. They’ll join Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds, along with more yet-to-be-announced artists live on stage at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis on October 4.
Want tickets but missed the Farm Aid member pre-sale? They go on sale Saturday, July 25th at 10 am CST at www.livenation.com, the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater Box Office, by calling (877) 598-8703, or at participating Blockbuster stores (visit livenation.com for list of locations). You’ll want to go early, since there’s no service charge at the box office for the first week of ticket sales, July 25 through August 1. Also, for those folks up for getting up early on Saturday, the first few hundred to purchase tickets at the box office will get a free Farm Aid t-shirt!
Check out this radio PSA that Willie recorded about the concert and Farm Aid’s work with family farmers. I used my meager iMovie skills to add some photos from last year’s concert to the audio for your viewing pleasure:
