This how 350.org official website presents the concert:

We couldn’t be more ready to rock. Music has always been a critical part of 350.org, from the songs that we sang around the world during our first major day of action back in 2009, to the chants that we’ve shouted out in the streets of New York (and a thousand other cities) during the People’s Climate March last year. As we gear up for a busy few months of action around the Paris Climate Talks, we’re thrilled to have the partnership of some of these incredible musicians to drive us forward. […] Rock on!
