After a hiatus of over 20 years, Farm Aid festival makes a triumphant return to Indiana this fall

Join us for the exciting all-day music and food festival taking place on September 23 at the Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana.

The lineup of headliners includes legendary Farm Aid board members such as Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews (with Tim Reynolds), and Margo Price. They will be joined by other fantastic performers like Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros featuring The Wolfpack, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson, Allison Russell, The String Cheese Incident, and Particle Kid.

Farm Aid originated with the mission of supporting family farms and promoting regenerative, sustainable farming practices as a solution to combat climate change.

“Our family farmers hold the answers to some of our toughest challenges,” stated Farm Aid President and Founder Willie Nelson in a news release. “As we confront a changing climate, farmers in Indiana, across the Midwest, and throughout the nation are adopting farming methods that foster resilient farms, build healthy soils, and safeguard our water.”

This marks the third Farm Aid concert to be held in Indiana. Farm Aid IV occurred at the Hoosier Dome in Indianapolis in 1990, and Farm Aid 2001: A Concert for America took place in Noblesville just weeks after the terrorist attacks of 2001.

According to the Farm Aid organization, Indiana ranks as the eighth largest farming state in the country, boasting nearly 57,000 farms and over 94,000 farmers. The state’s agricultural sector generates an impressive $31.2 billion annually. While corn and soybeans are the primary crops, Hoosier farmers cultivate more than 30 major fruits and vegetables each year, including melons, pumpkins, and mint.

“We are thrilled and privileged to bring the Farm Aid experience back to Indiana. This is my home state, which holds immense significance for me and for the generations of family farmers who have devoted their lives to caring for the Earth and providing us with nourishing food,” expressed Farm Aid Co-Founder John Mellencamp in a statement.

The Farm Aid event will blend captivating performances with educational initiatives, advocacy efforts, and hands-on activities. Expect delightful concessions featuring a fresh menu sourced directly from family farmers.
