The benefit, which is organized by Neil Young and his wife Pegi, is scheduled Oct. 22-23 in Mountain View, Calif., at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. All proceeds go toward The Bridge School. The non-profit organization helps children with severe speech and physical impairments through augmentative and alternative communication systems.
This year’s lineup features Young, Dave Matthews, Arcade Fire, Eddie Vedder, Mumford & Sons, Devendra Banhart, Norah Jones with The Little Willies, and Los Invisibles (featuring Carlos Santana, his wife Cindy Blackman Santana and guests).
Jimmy Fallon will emcee Saturday’s show. Foo Fighters and Tony Bennett will perform Sunday only.
Saturday’s show will be streamed in its entirety on Facebook and YouTube. Fans at the concert as well as fans at home can participate in the experience together through a new Facebook app. Audience members can upload photos and send messages during the show while fans at home can share past Bridge School photos and concert memories.
