Dylan Fest Comes to New York and San Francisco in November

Are you a Dylan fan? Then this is your dream come true...Yep, it's Dylan Fest! With two locations, New York and San Francisco, Dylan Fest piles on the Dylan with some classic and new names, for a Dylan overdose!!! Plus, 100% of the ticket sale proceeds will benefit Sweet Relieve and the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. Do a good deed, hear some good music. Yeah! Here are the details...

After two hugely successful sold-out Petty Fests in Nashville and Austin -- featuring Kings of Leon, Emmylou Harris, Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, Norah Jones, Trisha Yearwood, Joy Williams of Civil Wars, Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellem, Charlie Sexton, Doyle Bramhall II, Butch Walker, Karen Elson, Danny Masterson, Jakob Dylan and many, many more -- the Best Fest sponsored by Jameson is proud to announce upcoming Dylan Fests in New York and San Francisco.

Once again, every penny of ticket sale proceeds will benefit Sweet Relief. In the past year, the Best Fest has teamed up with Jameson Irish Whiskey and Sweet Relief to help raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help provide financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability or age-related problems.

The Best Fest is honored to bring Dylan Fest back home to New York, where it was created and has been an annual tradition since 2001, and thrilled to debut Dylan Fest in San Francisco.
