This marks the second consecutive year that award-winning country lifestyle network Circle will bring the annual Farm Aid festival to a television audience, and the 13th year that SiriusXM has carried the show on satellite radio. For the first time ever, the Farm Aid press event featuring farmers and artists will be streamed live for viewers.
The September 24th music, food and farm festival is sold out, offering fans several options to enjoy Farm Aid performances from home, including Circle Network, SiriusXM and FarmAid.org.
Farm Aid 2022 will feature performances by Willie Nelson & Family, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, and Margo Price, as well as Chris Stapleton, Sheryl Crow, Lukas Nelson, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, Allison Russell, Charley Crockett, Brittney Spencer and Particle Kid.
Where to watch:
Circle will broadcast the festival on television, beginning at 7 p.m. ET, with live and prerecorded segments from Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek in Raleigh, North Carolina. Circle also will stream Farm Aid 2022 on its Facebook, Twitter and TikTok pages (@CircleAllAccess) throughout the day, beginning with the 11 a.m. press event. Fans can find Circle on its linear feed and across most streaming platforms, including Roku, DISH, Samsung TV Plus, Peacock, VIZIO SmartCast, Tubi, Redbox and more.
Beginning at 12 p.m. ET, SiriusXM subscribers will be able to listen to Farm Aid 2022 on SiriusXM’s Willie’s Roadhouse (channel 59) and Dave Matthews Band Radio (channel 30) via SiriusXM radios and on the SXM App. The live coverage also will include backstage interviews with artists and stories from family farmers, hosted by SiriusXM’s Dallas Wayne. All coverage will feature a behind-the-scenes look at the Farm Aid festival in Raleigh and the organization’s year-round work to strengthen family farm agriculture.
FarmAid.org, Farm Aid’s YouTube channel and DISH’s Facebook page will livestream Farm Aid 2022 beginning at 11 a.m. ET with the Farm Aid press event. The press event, featuring Farm Aid artists, farmers and food producers from across the Southeast, will livestream for the first time, offering fans at home a special opportunity to experience a dynamic conversation between farmers and artists.
We’re honored that North Carolina has embraced Farm Aid in this way, and we’re excited to connect with people across the Southeast who value the power of music to bring us together, appreciate delicious family farm food and — most of all — support family farmers. We’re also fortunate to continue our collaborations with Circle and SiriusXM to bring the Farm Aid festival to those not able to join us in Raleigh. — Carolyn Mugar, executive director of Farm Aid
