Farm Aid 2019 – The Progressive

Farm Aid 2019 – The day was not just about the music, but the music was damn fine.


September 23, 2019

Farm Aid 2019 took place this Saturday at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin. The first Farm Aid concert was held in 1985 in Champaign, Illinois. This year’s sold-out event was attended by more than 35,000 people—a 12-hour-long celebration of American farmers headlined by Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson.
