Young will be joined by Arcade Fire, Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, Mumford and Sons, Beck and Los Invisibles featuring Carlos Santana for the weekend festivities.
Other artists listed on concert’s official site include jazz queen Diana Krall (Saturday), Tony Bennett (Sunday) and Foo Fighters (Sunday). Yes, it seems the stars are all turning out for the cause closest to Young’s heart.
Check out the clip promoting the 2011 Bridge School Benefit Concert below and get hyped on the weekend, which raises money for the special school Young and wife Pegi started back in 1986 to help their son Ben. Heavy hitters like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Crosby, Stills, Nash were on hand to kick off the inaugural concert, which has become a staple on the calendar for music lovers (with the exception of 1987 when the benefit was canceled).
Tickets go on sale Sept. 16 via Live Nation, with proceeds going towards assisting children with disabilities and communication needs.
