Willie Nelson is bringing Farm Aid to Burgettstown, Pennsylvania’s KeyBank Pavilion later this year.

The annual fundraising event will feature performances from founder Willie Nelson as well as board members Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews. Jamey Johnson, The Avett Brothers, Blackberry Smoke, Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson, Valerie June, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Insects vs. Robots are also set to perform.

“Family farm agriculture is the heart of Pennsylvania,” Nelson said. “What’s happening in western Pennsylvania and the region shows us that we can count on family farmers to strengthen our communities and connect people. Whether we live in rural or urban places, food — and music — brings us all together.”

Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised $48 million to support rural farmers and their families. This year will mark the first time the event has returned to Burgettstown since 2002.
