Wyandotte County is already getting some sweet musical action this year from Kanrocksas — and it might be about to get sweeter.

Farm Aid is set to make a “big announcement” at 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon at LiveStrong Sporting Park, the new soccer stadium in the Legends. Since 1985, Farm Aid, “with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year,” has hosted concerts in different parts of the country to “support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture, and promote food from family farms.” 

Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, Neil Young and John Mellencamp are already confirmed to play 2011’s Farm Aid concert. The chances that those four will be coming to good old KCK? Right now, it’s looking pretty good.

We’ll keep you updated as we hear more. Check out Farm Aid’s website for more information.
