Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, The Roots sign on for free Charlottesville concert

While you don't have to pay for tickets, donations are encouraged.

Though #DACA and #HurricaneHarvey have rightfully had a stronghold on headlines lately, the aftermath of the racially-charged violence in Charlottesville still lingers palpably. And in an effort to encourage unity, the Dave Matthews Band has just announced a star-studded show for the affected city.

DMB has recruited Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, The Roots, Ariana Grande, and others for A Concert for Charlottesville. Going down September 24 at University of Virginia's Scott Stadium, the show will be free for Charlottesville residents, those of adjacent counties, and UVA students and staff.

According to the site, while tickets are free, attendees are encouraged to make a donation to a fund in which the benefits will go to the victims, their families, and first responders of Charlottesville's domestic terrorism, as well as to organizations dedicated to promoting of unity and justice.
