Over the course of the day, you’ll hear backstage interviews with artists and family farmers, as well as behind-the-scenes coverage of the event, which is America’s longest running benefit concert series.

Want more details? We’ve got them … in a list!

Here are the top five things you’ll hear at Farm Aid 2014:

1. Full sets from the “Four Horseman” of Farm Aid, board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, who will once again be performing as an acoustic duo with Tim Reynolds. In addition to heartland classics like Pink Houses, Mellencamp will likely preview songs from his upcoming album, Plain Spoken, and Willie will surely include songs from his latest Band Of Brothers set.

2. The much-anticipated Farm Aid debut of Jack White, who recorded Young’s latest album “A Letter Home” in his Voice-O-Graph recording booth, and hosted Nelson’s 80th all-star birthday celebration at his Third Man Records complex in Nashville last year.

3. Additional sets from Farm Aid first-timers Gary Clark Jr., Todd Snider, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Delta Rae, along with the return of country traditionalists Jamey Johnson and Carlene Carter.

4. Farm Aid is a family affair for Nelson, whose sons Lukas (Promise of the Real) and Micah (Insects Vs. Robots) will be performing with their bands, and his granddaughter Raelyn Nelson will take the Farm Aid stage for the first time. Expect the whole clan to return for the traditional gospel finale, Roll Me Up & Smoke Me When I Die, in his headlining set which will begin at roughly 10 pm ET.

5. Behind-the-scene interviews with artists and farmers, to address the many issues facing America’s family farmers and promote a strong and resilient system of agriculture to support the Good Food movement.
