The event will feature both live and virtual performances. Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes curated the lineup, and also will be performing. Other artists on the bill include Jewel, Ziggy Marley, Jane’s Addiction‘s Perry Farrell, Foo Fighters, Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale, Tracy Bonham, Macy Gray, James Blunt, Juliette Lewis & the Licks, Kevin Bacon, Aloe Blacc and Pete Yorn.

Rock ‘n’ Relief will stream from 12 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. PT on March 5 and 6 via the Amazon Music Twitch channel, the Amazon Music mobile app and Rolling Stone magazine’s YouTube channel.
