FARM AID PLANS UNDERWAY

According to reports, plans are underway for 2003's Farm Aid festival with headliners including Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews.

The annual concert/festival is scheduled for September 7 at the Germain Ampitheater in Columbus, Ohio.

"Farm Aid is committed to the hard working farm families who give us so much," said Willie Nelson, who organized the first Farm Aid with Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985. "Ohio is a strong farming state where much of the farmland is still owned and operated by family farmers, the backbone of Ohio's economy."

Tickets for the event will range between $36 and $78 and will go on sale starting June 28 at Ticketmaster. Proceeds are donated to organizations across the country. Since its inception, Farm Aid has raised more than $24 million.
