Concert for Charlottesville this weekend

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVEC) -- Dave Matthews Band is hosting a benefit concert in Charlottesville this weekend, and it's not too late to get tickets to see Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake, Chris Stapleton and more.

The final release of tickets is Saturday at 8 a.m. at UVA's Scott Stadium West Gate ticket office. The concert is Sunday, September 24 at the stadium.

Tickets are free, but attendees are encouraged to make a donation to a charity fund whose beneficiaries will include victims of the August violence and first responders.

Other performers include Ariana Grande, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, The Roots and Cage the Elephant.

Tegna, our parent company, is donating $10,000 to the Concert for Charlottesville Fund. It will support victims and their families, first responders, and causes promoting racial and religious tolerance.

The event will be streamed live online at musicandunity.tumblr.com beginning at 6 p.m.
