Farm Aid 2022
Farm Aid 2022 will take place Saturday, September 24, in Raleigh, North Carolina!
Farm Aid’s annual festival is an all-day celebration of music and family farmers featuring a unique lineup of artists and genres, along with family farm-identified, local and organic foods as part of our HOMEGROWN Concessions®. Doors will open at noon, music will start shortly after that and run until approximately 11pm. A schedule of performances will be posted to our website and app shortly before the festival.
Farm Aid 2022 will be at Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek, which marks the second time that Farm Aid has brought its festival to the state.
“I’ve always said that family farmers strengthen us all. Farmers in North Carolina, across the Southeast, and all over the country are growing solutions to our toughest challenges, including climate change. We’re bringing Farm Aid here to highlight their hard work and celebrate the ways we can all join farmers to help.” — Willie Nelson
Farm Aid 2022 will reunite family farmers and musician activists, with performances by Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson & Family, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, and Margo Price, as well as Chris Stapleton, Sheryl Crow, Lukas Nelson, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Allison Russell, Charley Crockett, Brittney Spencer, and Particle Kid.

“Everywhere we go, we hear from festivalgoers that there’s nothing quite like the Farm Aid experience. Farmers and eaters are inspired and empowered at the intersection of music and family farm food to support the source of our food — family farmers — and to join farmers in fighting for our soil and water.” — Carolyn Mugar, Farm Aid Executive Director

Each Farm Aid festival features our HOMEGROWN Concessions®, the first-of-its-kind model for featuring family farm-identified, local and organic foods at major concert events. HOMEGROWN Concessions® has fed more than 283,000 festivalgoers since its introduction in 2007 at the HOMEGROWN Festival at Randall’s Island in New York City. It has served as a model for entertainment events, including the Super Bowl and a variety of music festivals and venues that have embraced the Good Food Movement in concessions. Backstage, artists and crew enjoy HOMEGROWN Catering with the same family farm standards. We use compostable service products and promote composting to festivalgoers and artists with a goal of zero waste.
The HOMEGROWN Village is like a mini festival within a festival! In the Village, festivalgoers explore hands-on activities that engage all of their senses in the Farm Aid mission. Hear farmers and artists talk together about pressing issues on the FarmYard Stage, attend demonstrations to learn agrarian skills and celebrate the culture of agriculture in the HOMEGROWN Skills tent, connect with farmers and organizations doing critical food and farm work all over the country and so much more.
Based on the latest local guidelines, attendees are not required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test and/or vaccination for entry into this event. In the best interest of fans and staff, Farm Aid encourages festivalgoers to wear a mask throughout the duration of the event.
- Venue and Farm Aid staff are staying up to date on the latest CDC guidance and industry best practices to limit the transmission of COVID-19. We will monitor the situation closely and will update protocols as warranted leading up to the festival.

“Get your shot! Take care of yourself and others.” – Willie Nelson
