The 34th annual Farm Aid concert was Saturday at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin. The event went on despite the flash flood warning and heavy rainfall. The crowd members stood pressed together in a muddy field to see performances from Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Luke Combs, and 15 other acts.
The Farm Aid event is put on every year to raise awareness of the rapid rate in which family-owned and operated farms are closing. 2,700 farms across the country closed, with 25% of those being in our neighboring state.
