Willie Nelson‘s annual Farm Aid concert is back, and the lineup is stacked with top musical talent.

Set for Sept. 16 at KeyBank Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pa., Nelson will share the stage with fellow Farm Aid board members Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews. Additional artists set to perform include Tim Reynolds, Jack Johnson, the Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Blackberry Smoke, Valerie June, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Insects vs. Robots.

Farm Aid is far from just a live music festival. The mission each year is to help family farmers thrive throughout the country. Since its inception in 1985, Farm Aid has raised more than $50 million for family farmers.

“Folks are educating themselves about where and how food is grown — they’re hungry for the truth,” Nelson says in a statement. “Family farmers bring us good food, protect our soil and water, and strengthen our country. The Farm Aid concert is a day for us to honor that truth and keep working for family farmers.”

Tickets for Farm Aid go on sale on June 23 at 10AM EDT. Seat are available through LiveNation.com or at the KeyBank Pavilion box office. Ticket prices range from $49.50 to $199.50.

Farm Aid 2017 will include HOMEGROWN Concessions, which features family farm-identified, local and organic foods. The menu will include pork chops, brats, corn dogs, burgers, veggie burgers, chicken, hot dogs and a wide variety of vegetarian, ethnic and fresh, local foods.
