2011 25th Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert Lineup Announcement

The Bridge School Benefit is an annual non-profit charity concert held in Mountain View, California every October at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The concerts are all organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi. Proceeds benefit The Bridge School. The first concert was in October 1986, and, with the exception of 1987, the concert has been held every year since. As a practice, but not a rule, the performers use acoustic instruments. Young also personally performs every year.

Tickets will go on sale September 16th through Live Nation. Information about ticket sales, pricing, seating charts, parking, etc. can be found on the Live Nation site.

Update (9/7): Beck is actually confirmed for both Saturday and Sunday’s shows now.


  1. […] Based on the response to the lineup post on the annual Bridge School Benefit (set for the weekend of Oct. 22-23, 2011 again in Mountain View, CA), it’s pretty clear that this event is something that people really look forward to every year. A lot of folks are very loyal to the fantastic cause that is the Bridge School and it’s great to see all these amazing artists sign on, year after year. […]

  2. Arcade Fire should in no way shape or form come on before Neil! 25 years and that was the best we could get to open for him. They should have cone on in the day, when people cared! Amazing day outside of that!
