Jack White has been named as one of the headliners for the upcoming Farm Aid concert at Raleigh, NC's Walnut Creek Amphitheater on September 13. White will be joined by fellow headlining acts Neil Young and Willie Nelson for the event.
Other acts on the bill include John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jamey Johnson, Delta Rae, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Carlene Carter, Pegi Young & The Survivors, and Insects vs Robots.
"In North Carolina and across the Southeast, family farmers have struggled to stay on the land, but they have also pioneered new roads to economic sustainability," said Nelson, President and Founder of Farm Aid, in a statement. "This region knows the value of its farmers and offers increasing opportunities for new farmers to build a strong regional food system. On the Farm Aid stage Saturday, September 13, we'll celebrate family farmers and the healthy communities they're growing for all of us."
Tickets for Farm Aid 2014 go on sale August 1 at 10:00 AM EST.
"All day long, people are performing onstage and food from family farmers is being served. It's a great occasion for families to come listen to great music and teach their children about where their food comes from," added Mellencamp of the event.
