For 25 years, legendary folk singer/songwriter Neil Young has been curating benefit festivals for California’s Bridge School – a school for children with special needs. This year, he delivered an impressive line-up of indie rock musicians from around the world.
Highlight: Neil joining The Arcade Fire onstage to perform a big-band rendition of his 1969 track, ‘Helpless’.
