The third annual Dylan Fest will return to Atlantic City in August.
The festival celebrates the music and art of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and recent Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan.
The event sold out the previous two years and will be held Aug. 12 at Dante Hall on Mississippi Avenue, according to a statement from Stockton University.
The event begins with a pre-show wine tasting and Dylan-themed art show from 5 to 7 p.m. The lobby of Dante Hall will be filled with original artwork from the artist.
Live music begins at 7:30 p.m. with The 5 Believers performing the Dylan album “Infidels.” The group will be joined by Gary Solomon of The Band to perform songs Dylan and The Band played together, the statement said.
GALLERY: Summer nor'easter flooding in the area
A rare summer nor'easter dropped more than 5 inches of rain over the region Friday evening, bringing with it strong winds and flooding.
Low-lying areas near the beach did what they are prone to do: flood. But the flooding remained minor through the morning, receding in most areas by 11 a.m.
Take a look at how the storm has affected your area.
Other performances include an acoustic set by Just Like the Women — a band specifically formed for the concert — which consists of women vocalists from South Jersey.
The opening set will be performed by Watson & Shocket, and live music will be emceed by WZXL’s Steve Raymond. Raymond will play three separate sets of Dylan songs.
The concert has local significance as it was formed in 2015 as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Dylan collaborating with Levon & the Hawks in Somers Point.
Dylan memorabilia will be available at the show along with food and beverages, according to the release.
Tickets at the door will be $25, but pre-sale tickets are $20 and can be purchased at stockton.edu/dante or by calling 609-626-3890.
