After selling more than 29,000 tickets, Farm Aid 2012 being held Sept. 22 at Hershey Park Stadium, is officially sold out.
The news comes the same day that Jamey Johnson and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals were announced as additions to the lineup, according to a news release.
It was also announced that the Blackwood Quartet and the Bee Creek Gospel Singers will join Willie Nelson on stage during his performance.
Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise money to help to preserve family farms. Dave Matthews joined the nonprofit organization as a member of the Farm Aid Board of Directors in 2001.
The 2012 list of performers includes Nelson, Mellencamp, Jack Johnson, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, and Kenny Chesney.
Martin Guitar is also an official sponsor of the event.
