According to John's official Facebook page, his band soundchecked the following songs Friday night, on the eve of Farm Aid, so it's pretty safe to expect these songs to be played on Saturday night at the actual concert:

Authority Song
Death Letter
Walk Tall
Check It Out
Save Some Time to Dream
Small Town
New Hymn
Rain on the Scarecrow
Pink Houses
R.O.C.K. in the USA

From what I can remember:

Authority Song
Death Letter
Walk Tall
Check It Out
Jackie Brown
Small Town
New Hymn
Rain on The Scarecrow
If I Die Sudden
Pink Houses

I am pretty sure this was his set.  VERY SHORT, even for Farm Aid.  40 minutes.  Never said hello.  After CIO, he said "Thank You Very Much."  After PH, he said "Thank You For Supporting Farm Aid."  That was it. 

Loved what he played.  Well over $300 for my wife and I.  A bit of a blur, but we'll take it.  Loved Dave Matthews too.

How long did the others play?
Well at least he played 10 songs like on the original soundcheck list. so he planned it 40 min I guess.

I think it would be nice for each of the headliners to do a 90 minute set.

Did John, Neil and Dave all come out to sing with Willie at the end? I heard they did not  do that this year.

I read DM's set was almost 45 min.

45minutes is the set time for all of the headliners more or less. Pretty much they try to get each headliner on 60minutes after the one before starts so Dave at 730, John at 830, Neil at 930 and Willie at 1030. I am not sure how it was trending last night if they were on schedule or running late, sometimes they have to shorten if running late due to curfews.

No, the only headliner out there at the end was Willy.  He did have Will Daly and Jamey Johnson out there with a plethora of other folks (Native American dancers from opening, a marine in full uniform, the guy who played harmonica for Jakob Dylan and with Lukas Nelson plus lots of others. 

Mraz didn't bring his band this year - just Taco Riveria (I think that was his name).  Same with Neil Young - no Pegi.  Both their solo sets were great. 

Jamey Johnson didn't sing his #1 In Color, but he did sing Give it Away and that got an enthusiastic response. 

Enjoyed Farm Aid greatly.  Good seats.  Love that security did keep the aisle between 4A and 3A clear (for the most part).  Really enjoyed Rebecca Pidgeon and was surprised that I enjoyed Billy Joe Shaver.

Would have to agree that if you didn't know John was playing Farm Aid, you'd really have not known.  They were wonderful, but no real acknowledgement of farmers and their plight.  However, I'll take JM live no matter how he comes. 

As Neil said, buy American if you can't buy local.  Which is why I walked past the on sale grapes from Mexico in favor of the Washington state cherries.

How was the sound live for the different bands?  I know in some of those big stadiums the sound system and acoustics are not so great.  I heard a good part of John's set on Sirius and thought they sounded great on there.  Still amazed by the way the reworked Walk Tall sounds and each time I hear the new version I think it sounds better.

I'm not a good judge of the sound quality overall.  Earlier in the afternoon we just sat down in the stands and it sounded good.  Loved Rebecca Pidgeon's "Disintegration Man" and heard that in the stands.  Moved to my seat in 4A, row 8 and we could feel the music as well as hear it. :-)  At times there was some feedback, but overall I had no complaints.
