Imagine Dragons, Flaming Lips, and Lauryn Hill are set to headline Amnesty International’s “Bringing Human Rights Home” concert at Barclays Center on Feb. 5.

The show, which will also include performances from Tegan and Sara, The Fray, Cold War Kids and Colbie Caillat, will mark the 25th anniversary of the group’s Human Rights Concerts series, which featured U2, Sting and Lou Reed.

“Amnesty's past concerts have featured some of the greatest artists of our generation and have been catalysts for real, measurable change,” Imagine Dragons singer Dan Reynolds said in a statement. “It's an honor to perform as part of this event and continue the cause of championing human rights around the world.”

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday through Ticketmaster. American Express card holders can purchase pre-sale tickets starting at 10 a.m. Thursday.

“The fight for global human rights begins at home,” said Steven W. Hawkins, executive director for Amnesty International USA. “This concert is part of an evolving conversation about human rights that grounds the universal struggle for dignity and freedom in the injustices we see every day in our own backyard in the United States.”
