Willie Nelson is among the performers announced for Farm Aid 2015. The benefit concert, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, goes down at the First Merit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island outside of Chicago.

The bill features a host of top talent including John Mellencamp, Imagine Dragons, Neil Young, Kacey Musgraves, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and Old Crow Medicine Show, among others.

"We organized the first Farm Aid concert in Illinois in 1985 to respond to the people suffering during the farm crisis," Nelson says in a statement.

"Thirty years later, in Chicago, we'll bring together so many of the people — farmers, eaters, advocates and activists — who have made the progress of the Good Food Movement possible. At Farm Aid 30, we'll celebrate the impact we've had and rally our supporters for the work ahead."

Tickets go on sale August 3 at the Farm Aid website. The concert has raised nearly $48 million since 1985.
