“The experience of the past 18 months has reminded us how much we need each other … I’m so glad that music is bringing us all back together at FARM AID 2021 to celebrate family farmers,” said FARM AID Pres. and founder WILLIE NELSON. “When we combine music, family farmers and good food, we have the power to grow the kind of agriculture that strengthens all of us.”
Pre-sale tickets will be available for purchase starting TOMORROW (7/21), and the public sale will begin on FRIDAY (7/23) at 9a (CT).
