The iconic fundraising festival began in 1985, with the intention of raising awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise money so farming families can keep their land. Farm Aid has raised more than $43 million to date, according to its website.

The annual music extravaganza changes locations nearly every year. Last year's event took place in Hershey, PA, and featured sets by the board members, as well as Jack Johnson, Kenny Chesney, Jamey Johnson, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and ALO, among others.
