Patti Smith, Iggy Pop and The Flaming Lips have been added to the virtual Tibet House Benefit on Feb. 17.
The event – which typically takes place at New York’s Carnegie Hall, but pivoted to a livestream amidst the COVID-19 pandemic – will also feature the likes of Eddie Vedder, Phoebe Bridgers, Brittany Howard, Valerie June, Angélique Kidjo and many more.
The Tibet House Benefit raises money and awareness for NYC’s Tibet House US, which was founded in 1987 at the request of the Dalai Lama and continues to strive to maintain and protect Tibetan culture.
“For the first time ever, this year’s concert offers viewers around the world the unique opportunity to experience the warmth, sense of community and amazing music the evening has provided for so many years at Carnegie Hall,” reads an official description.
Other new additions include Jesse Paris Smith, Marc Anthony Thompson of Chocolate Genius, Inc. with Tessa Thompson and Saori Tsukada.
Virtual passes for the benefit are on sale now.
