John Mellencamp has announced the initial details behind this year's Farm Aid concert. Set to hit the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA, on September 20, the show will be co-headlined by Neil Young, Dave Matthews and Willie Nelson, with more acts to-be-confirmed soon. While some of the performers are the same as years past, this fall's show will be the first to hit the New England area.
"New England was built on the strength of independent family farmers," Mellencamp said in a statement. "We can honor that independent spirit by joining Farm Aid to grow the movement that is changing the way all of America eats."
Tickets for this year's event go on sale July 28 through Ticketmaster.
