The Best Fest

The Best Fest, a periodic festival and benefit that brings together musicians and comedians to celebrate a music icon, has announced its 2016 installment, Pitchfork reports. It’s called Fleetwood Mac Fest and will be held on February 9-10 at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and the Sweet Stuff Foundation—two organizations dedicated to helping musicians and their families during times of illness and disability.

Hosted by The Cabin Down Below Band, the lineup boasts big names like Joanna Newsom, Cold War Kids, KT Tunstall, and comedians Sarah Silverman and Will Forte.

Other performers include Mark Ronson, Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Perry & Etty Farrell, Dhani Harrison, PHASES, Ruby Amanfu, Karen Elson, Butch Walker, Doyle Bramhall II, Jess Wolfe & Holly Laessig (of Lucius), Jessie Baylin, The Pierces, Jamestown Revival, Danny Masterson, Bijou Phillips, Elvis Perkins, Emily Armstrong, Adam Busch, Jack Dishel, and Mereki, as well as “Many Many More Surprise Guests!”

The Best Fest started ten years ago in celebration of Bob Dylan’s birthday and has grown to national recognition, hosting numerous sold-out shows in NYC, LA, San Francisco, Austin, and Seattle. The foundation has also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities as a result. Previous installments of The Best Fest have focused on George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Brian Wilson, and the Rolling Stones.

Tickets for Fleetwood Mac Fest go on sale Friday, January 22 at 10am PT. Who’s going with us?
