Farm Aid Coming to SPAC, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, Neil Young and John Mellencamp Confirmed to Play

Saratoga Springs, NY’s Saratoga Performing Arts Center will host Farm Aid for the first time on September 21. Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews will all perform at the event and additional acts will be confirmed in the coming weeks. A FarmAid.org ticket pre-sale starts Tuesday, June 18 at noon.

Dave Matthews Band recently wrapped-up a two-night stand at SPAC. This is the second year in a row Farm Aid has taken place in the Northeast, following last year’s event in Hershey, PA. The only other time Farm Has has been held in New York was a 2007 stop at Randall’s Island.

Easily one of the finest benefit concerts to attend in the United States.
Serious mission with a high caliber of quality, dedicated performers, Farm Aid Staff Members and Event Volunteers. Don’t Miss! Support your Local Farmer!

Awesome for the capital region! It’s too bad SPAC was largely ruined with the monstrosity of a concessions area right in the center of what was one of the greatest lawns in outdoors concert venues.
