A host of big names will converge on Dublin’s Academy on August 9th for Dylan Fest, in aid of the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
Pumping out Dylan tunes on the night will be a frankly incredible line-up of acts, including The Strokes’ Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr, James Vincent McMorrow, Fran Healy (he of Travis fame), Bell X1’s Paul Noonan, Jape, Gemma Hayes, Conor and Neil from Cast of Cheers, Heathers, Gavin Friday, Cathy Davey and Jerry Fish. A few more surprise names will also be added to the fold in advance of the show.
Tickets for the show are on sale now for the price of €25 and all proceeds will go to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, which aims to help musicians with struck down with illness and disability.
