Farm Aid 2019 brought a sold-out crowd of 30,000 fans together at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin, to celebrate family farmers.
The music on the stage featured Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews (performing with Tim Reynolds), as well as Bonnie Raitt, Luke Combs, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Margo Price, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Jamey Johnson, Tanya Tucker, Yola, Jamestown Revival, Particle Kid, Ian Mellencamp, Wisdom Indian Dancers and Ho-Chunk Thundercloud Singers. All of these artists donated their time, transportation and talents to support farm families.
“It’s the right time to bring Farm Aid back to America’s Dairyland. We’re proud of the farm families who are coming together in the face of adversity to stay on their land. Now is the time to rally behind them and show our appreciation for all they do for our country and for each of us.” — Willie Nelson
Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Village, inspired festivalgoers with hands-on activities that gave festivalgoers a chance to meet farmers, dig in and learn about the ways farmers enrich our soil, protect our water, grow our economy and bring us good food for good health. People were able to play games that test their farming know-how, enjoy farm machinery and robotics demonstrations, engage in compost-making, try their hand at milking cows, and get up close and personal with the microbes that live in healthy organic soil.
