Farm Aid 2011 Locks In KC Date

The annual Farm Aid concert is back in the heartland this summer.  Mainstays Neil Young. Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews are all confirmed for the August 13 concert, which will be staged this year at LiveStrong Park in Kansas City.  The home of the Kansas City Athletics was known as Municipal Stadium before Charlie Finley uprooted the franchise and moved it to Oakland and the city's current MLB team took-up residence in Kauffman Stadium.  The annual musical celebration of family farms and locally grown, organic foods has been going strong since 1985 and has raised nearly $40 million to support independent farmers and promote the Good Food Movement.  Additional acts will be announced for the concert soon.
