Dylan Fest is Coming to San Francisco
Earlier this month we reported that Dylan Fest would be returning to New York City. Now it looks like the Bob Dylan tribute event will be taking place in San Francisco for the first time this year as well.
The Great American Music Hall will host the one-day San Francisco Dylan Fest on November 20. The concert will feature performance by Doyla Bramhall II, Sly & The Family Stone’s Cynthia Robinson and Jerry Martini, Elvis Perkins, Midlake’s Eric Pulido, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn and Tad Kubler, Heartless Bastards’ Erika Wennerstrom, Kelley Stoltz, Ruby Amanfu, Nicki Bluhm, Tim Bluhm, Boots Riley, Lukas Nelson, Chuck Prophet, Rayland Baxter, The Whigs, Danny Clinch, The Candles’ Josh Lattanzi, Chase Cohl and Neal Casal. There will also be a number of surprise special guests.
Tickets to the San Francisco Dylan Fest are now on sale for $25. 100% of the ticket proceeds from the show will go to Sweet Relief and the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, which provides financial assistance to the career musicians that are struggling to get by while facing illness, disability or age-related issues.
