The second annual benefit concert, presented by Charity Bomb, will feature a star-studded cast of musicians and celebrities performing modern takes on ‘80s classics that have stood the test of time.

Additionally, Strange 80s 2 will give concert-goers the opportunity to interact with the artists, through 80s video arcade game competitions and special meet & greets. Fans will also have the chance bid on a number of donated items and exclusive opportunities.
100% of the proceeds from Strange 80s 2 will be donated to 320 Changes Direction, a movement which aims to change the way we talk about and seek help for mental health, depression, and addiction issues.
