The Best Fest's Dylan Fest 2016

The Best Fest is a traveling festival of sorts that got it's start with a group of friends getting together to celebrate Bob Dylan's birthday 15 years ago. Last week Bob Dylan turned 75 and The Best Fest put on two nights of Dylan Fest at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Dylan Fest, like all the events that are put on by the Best Fest, was both a celebration of music, as well as a communal concert experience that was shared between fans and all of the incredible musicians that come together for these shows. The unique experience of these Best Fest events is not only witnessing musicians team up who do not regularly play together, but also seeing these musicians feel so proud to be paying tribute to a fellow musician and artist that they themselves hold so dear. Dylan Fest celebrated Bob Dylan's 75th birthday and benefited the amazing Thistle Farms. Thistle Farms is a community of women who provide education, employment, and healing for women who are coming from prostitution, trafficking, and addiction.
