Foo Fighters, Neil Young, Mumford & Sons and Arcade Fire are among the artists set to play the yearly Bridge School Benefit concert, which is arranged by Young himself alongside his wife Pegi.

All the artists appearing at the shows, which take place October 22-23 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, will be performing acoustically. Other acts include Eddie Vedder, Tony Bennett, Beck, Jenny Lewis and Los Invisibles featuring Carlos Santana.

Profits from the weekend’s shows will go towards the Bridge School, which helps children with “severe physical impairments and complex communication needs”, reports Rolling Stone. The school was founded in 1986 by Neil Young and his wife to look after their son Ben and other children. The 1986 benefit show saw appearances from Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Don Henley.

David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Simon and Garfunkel, Elton John, The Who, Tom Waits and Metallica have all played the concert over the years.
