The annual Farm Aid concert, supporting the family-farm fund, will return to Lake Michigan this fall with a show scheduled for Oct. 2 at Milwaukee's Miller Park baseball stadium.

This is the 25th anniversray Farm Aid event, dubbed Farm Aid 25: Growing Hope for America. Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews will perform, with other artists to be announced.

Farm Aid's 20th anniversary concert was held at Tweeter Center (now First Midwest Bank Amphitheater) in Tinley Park near Chicago in 2005.
