Farm Aid 2011 has been announced to take place on Saturday August 13, and will be Farm Aid's first concert in Kansas, and the first concert at the new LIVESTRONGSporting Park in Kansas City.

“I’m looking forward to bringing my friends together in Kansas for the first time to honor family farmers,” said Farm Aid president Willie Nelson. “Farm Aid celebrates the independent family farmers and ranchers who make this country strong, and we know we can only fix the challenges our country faces with the know-how of family farmers.”

Headliners and Farm Aid Board members, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews will perform as always and additional artist will be announced later.

The concert benefits Farm Aid’s mission to keep family farmers on the land, to guarantee an agricultural system that ensures farmers a fair living, strengthens communities, protects natural resources and delivers good food for all.
