Jason Mraz, Neil Young, Dave Matthews for Farm Aid
Thursday, July 7 2011, 17:28 BST

Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews and Neil Young will be among the headliners of this year’s Farm Aid benefit concert.

This year’s Farm Aid gig will come from Kansas City, Kansas in August and will feature an array of artists that span musical genres.

Young and Matthews will be joined for the show by fellow Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp, as well as Jakob Dylan and country stars Billy Joe Shaver and Jamey Johnson.

Nelson’s son Lukas and his band Promise of the Real will take the stage for the charity gig, as will Young’s wife Peggy and her backing group the Survivors.

Farm Aid was founded in 1985 by Nelson, Young and Mellencamp as a response to Bob Dylan’s on-stage calls for aid to US agriculture works during the famine-relief benefit Live Aid. Dylan, Johnny Cash, Paul Simon and Elton John have all performed at the event in previous years.

The 26th annual Farm Aid concert will kick off on August 13 from the LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City. Tickets are on sale now.
