The Concert aims to be the largest music event to hit Christchurch this year.
Only 10,000 tickets are available and you can't buy a ticket.
To get a ticket, you have to do more than four hours of volunteer work in the community.
The first line-up announcement of Kiwi artists this week includes Avalanche City, Hollie Smith, Goodshirt, Dane Rumble, Jay Williams, K-One, Tyson Tyler and DJ CXL alongside the Illegal Banditz, Kidz In Space, Annah Mac, Autozamm, Late Nyte Hype and Massad.
Christchurch bands confirmed to perform at the R15 event at AMI Stadium on November 3 include Hera with House of Mountain, The Eastern and Dukes.
More acts have yet to be announced.
The event is co-ordinated by Student Volunteer Army head Sam Johnson, who said that a team of five was working on the project fulltime.
He said The Concert was about people making a difference in their community, then celebrating at the concert.
Ideas for volunteering were unlimited, he said, and could involve everything from singing songs in a rest home to helping out sports groups.
The event is R15, with R18 areas.
