HARVEST MOON BENEFIT CONCERT FEATURING NEIL YOUNG, NORAH JONES & FATHER JOHN MISTY ANNOUNCED FOR SEPTEMBER 14
SINGLE DAY GATHERING TO BENEFIT THE PAINTED TURTLE AND THE BRIDGE SCHOOL
Harvest Moon, a daytime benefit concert, is set to take place at the Painted Turtle camp in Lake Hughes, CA (50 minutes from Getty Center) on Saturday, September 14. Audiences will take in superlative cuisine and performances by Father John Misty, Norah Jones, and Neil Young on a grassy hillside with unobstructed views of the performers, mountains, and a beautiful lake nestled near the Los Angeles National Forest. Ticket quantities are strictly limited in order to provide an intimate experience, with all proceeds for the event going to The Painted Turtle (a non-profit providing children living with serious medical conditions a traditional camp experience free of charge) and The Bridge School (who provide free education to children with severe speech and physical impediments). More info on both organizations below.
Gates open at noon with the marimba ensemble Masanga playing as attendees arrive, followed by musical performances by Father John Misty, Norah Jones, and Neil Young, with the event winding down at sundown. Shortly after the date for the event was selected and Neil Young agreed to perform, organizers realized that September 14 was the day of the night of the Harvest Moon, which enhances the specialness of the occasion.
Included with each ticket is an all-star celebrity chef picnic cooked and served by Southern California’s top chefs, and a beer and wine tasting from select California Breweries and Wineries. A limited number of “Sponsor Packages” will be made available, which include a Saturday, September 14th overnight cabin and camping experience, chef designed gourmet dinner, campfire performance by Lisa Loeb, and Sunday, September 15 brunch and camp activities.
