Singer Dave Matthews, who formed his band in Charlottesville, Va. in 1991, will host a benefit concert for the city following last month's violent protests there. Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Pharrell, Chris Stapleton, The Roots and Brittany Howard of The Alabama Shakes are slated to perform, along with other not-yet-named special guests.

Billed as "A Concert For Charlottesville, An Evening Of Music And Unity," the free event will be held on Sept. 24 at the University Of Virginia's Scott Stadium beginning at 3:30 p.m. Concertgoers are being asked to donate to the Concert For Charlottesville Fund at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, with proceeds directed towards first responders, victims and their families affected by the violence in the city on Aug. 11 and 12.
