PRE-SALE: Greenbelt Harvest Picnic featuring Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Daniel Lanois, Emmylou Harris and more

Greenbelt Harvest Picnic featuring Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Daniel Lanois, Emmylou Harris and more

Saturday 8/31/2013 - 11:00 am EST @ Christie Lake Conservation Area in Dundas, ONTARIO, CANADA

Tickets go on sale ***TODAY*** on 5/28/2013 at 1:00 pm EST @ Neil Young.

Don't be denied!

Official video for song "Born In Ontario" by Neil Young & Crazy Horse from their new album, "Psychedelic Pill".

The event celebrates the importance of Ontario's Greenbelt, local farmers, art, the outdoors and the eat-local movement. According to the event's website Daniel Lanois, Emmylou Harris, Whitehorse, Trixie Whitley and Rocco DeLuca are also scheduled to perform.

The picnic was conceived by Lanois and his agent and friend J.P. Gauthier, both from the Hamilton area.

Young's performance with Crazy Horse is part of the Alchemy Tour which began in 2012. The Harvest Picnic is the only scheduled date for Young with Crazy Horse in southern Ontario in 2013.

“It is a great honour to have Neil Young & Crazy Horse join us for what will be an historic event for this region,” Gauthier announced on the website. “Fans can expect high quality sound, food and art in the most beautiful and intimate outdoor venue around.”

This year's festival will be the third annual event. Both Lanois and Harris have performed in the previous two festivals. Lanois said, "As I look at this year’s lineup for the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic, I can say that my dream has come true. I’m surrounded by artists who I love, many of whom I’ve made records with. This year’s Harvest is truly a homecoming.”
The Greenbelt Harvest Picnic takes place August 31 at the Christie Lake Conservation Area in Dundas. More performers will be announced in the next few weeks. Tickets go on sale June 1 at 10 a.m.

(Thanks bh & bnb!)

read an article online saying the past two years the festival crowd was about 7,500 .... sounds like a dream venue situation ... although guessing the crowd will grow with NY&CH playing.

Just picked up my tix in the presale!
Saw Neil in the fall in London Ontario. Hoping maybe by the end of August there will be some new material being played in anticipation of another new album.
This should be awesome to see him in such a small area.
I just hope they are not planning to put 50,000 people in an area designed for 10,000.

Five days to go to see Crazy Horse back in Hamburg. Will this be the last time we see them all here in Hamburg? I wish they do a 3 hours lasting gig with a lot of overdub. Really looking forward. Thanks Neil for coming to Hamburg again!!!

And on the aniversery of my first ever Neil Young show and Crazy Horse show at Molson Park in Barrie, August 31, 1996. That was an outdoor festival date as well, and with a huge Harvest Moon beside the stage as I recall.

Homegrown's alright with me.
