NASHVILLE SKYLINE, 2016 EDITION
4/12/16

Dylan Fest: A Celebration of Bob Dylan's 75th Birthday will take place at Nashville’s hallowed Ryman Auditorium 5/23-24. Dylan was born on May 24, 1941. The shows will also mark the 50th anniversary of the release of Blonde on Blonde, the first LP Dylan cut in Nashville.

During the two-night concert event, put on by Best Fest, more than 30 artists will perform their favorite Dylan songs. Among the confirmed participants are Emmylou Harris, Jason Isbell, Kacey Musgraves (5/24 only), Boz Scaggs, Ann Wilson, Kurt Vile, Wynonna & the Big Noise, Kesha, City & Colour, Moon Taxi, Brothers Osborne (5/24 only), Dhani Harrison, John Paul White, Nikki Lane, Brendan Benson, Rayland Baxter, Holly Williams, Langhorne Slim, Eric Pulido of Midlake, Ruby Amanfu, Karen Elson, Amanda Shires, Danny Masterson, Bijou Phillips, The Whigs, Cory Chisel, Adriel Denae, Jonathan Tyler, Robert Ellis, Shelly Colvin and Tommy Emmanuel. Charlie McCoy, who played on Blonde on Blonde, Nashville Skyline and John Wesley Harding, will be sitting in with the Cabin Down Below house band on harmonica.

"We are so thrilled by the generosity of all of these incredible performers," says Best Fest founder Austin Scaggs, a Rolling Stone editor who’s Boz’s son. "They're lending their time and talent for their love of Bob, and for a wonderful cause.”

Ticket sale proceeds benefit Thistle Farms, a Nashville-based charity committed to helping a community of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction.

Tickets go on sale Saturday (4/15).
