Update July 3: Farm Aid at SPAC is sold out.

Farm Aid announced overnight that its 2013 concert will be at SPAC September 21. Tickets go on sale June 28 -- they're $45 and up. (There's also a pre-sale that starts June 18.)

The headliners for this year's show are Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews. (All four are on the org's board of directors.) More acts will be announced later on.

The SPAC show will be Farm Aid's 27th concert -- the first one was in Illinois in 1985. The org says it's raised $43 million to help family farms.
