The recent events in Charlottesville, VA have prompted a handful of top-tier artists to come together for a mega one-off concert event. Charlottesville natives Dave Matthews Band will host the event in their hometown joined by The Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, Kentucky rockers Cage the Elephant and more.
The Concert For Charlottesville will take place on Sunday, Sept. 24 at University of Virginia‘s Scott Stadium in Charlottesville. Joining DMB, Cage the Elephant and Howard for the star-studded event are The Roots, Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams and Chris Stapleton. There is also the promise of additional “special guests.”
Tickets for the Concert For Charlottesville will be free for members of the Charlottesville and UVA communities via an online request process but a donation to the “Concert for Charlottesville Fund” at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation is highly encouraged. Funds raised will benefit victims of the Aug. 11 & 12 events in Charlottesville and their families as well as first responders.
Charlottesville area residents and UVA students, faculty and staff will receive ticket priority for the duration of the ticket request period, which is now underway and ends Monday, Sept. 11 at 12 p.m. ET. A limited number of free tickets will also be available at the John Paul Jones Arena box office on Friday, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m. ET.
