CAMDEN, N.J., Aug. 31 (UPI) -- Jerry Lee Lewis, Los Lonely Boys, Robert Randolph & the Family Band and Gov't Mule have been added to the bill for the 20th annual Farm Aid in Camden, N.J.

The Sept. 30 event features Neil Young, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, as well as Pauline Reese, Steve Earle and Allison Moorer, Arlo Guthrie, Shelby Lynne, Danielle Evin and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Billboard reported.

Over its life, Farm Aid has raised more than $29 million to help family farms, support locally grown food and fair pricing. Camden was chosen because of its large number of farmers markets.
