SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y., June 24 (UPI) -- Jack Johnson, Amos Lee, Kacey Musgraves and Toad the Wet Sprocket are among the acts booked to perform at Farm Aid 2013 in upstate New York, organizers said.

The music and food festival is scheduled for Sept. 21 at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs.

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Bahamas, JD & The Straight Shot, Carlene Carter and Pegi Young & the Survivors also will join Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews for the show.

"The Farm Aid benefit concert takes place each year thanks to the generosity of artists who donate their talent to raise awareness about the crucial need we have for family farmers on the land," Carolyn Mugar, executive director of Farm Aid, said in a statement Monday. "We are thrilled to have an eclectic lineup this year that includes returning artists, as well as artists new to the Farm Aid stage. Together, Farm Aid concertgoers and artists are changing our food system."
