RALEIGH, N.C. - Willie Nelson and the annual Farm Aid concert and food festival are coming to North Carolina.

The concert is scheduled for Sept. 13 in the Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh. It features performances by Nelson, who is Farm Aid president and co-founder, along with fellow board members John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews. Local artists will also perform.

Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised more than $45 million through the festival to help family farmers keep their land and publicize locally grown food.

Those in attendance can eat food from vendors, meet local farmers and learn about cultivating land.

Tickets for the concert go on sale in August and prices range from $49 to $175. A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available Friday.
