MISSOULA – There’s some big news for music lovers, especially Pearl Jam fans.
The band has announced they will hold a festival at Griz Stadium, a fun community event that will take place during the day, prior to their Aug. 13 show in Missoula.
The festival will feature progressive, Montana-led and nonprofit organizations as the band hopes that the event will give the groups a voice and an opportunity to share their stories.
"Cuts to the state budget have significantly reduced service to some of Montana’s most vulnerable, and we stand with the organizations providing critical service to our neighbors," Pearl Jam bassist and part-time Missoula resident Jeff Ament said in a news release.
The event is free and open to the public and will take place from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Grizzly tailgate area north of Washington-Grizzly Stadium. Click here for more information.
