Dylan Fest AC 2018, presented by Formica Bros Bakery is back for it’s 4th year! This annual sell out concert festival features the 5 Believers and other musical acts. It all takes place at Dante Hall Theater, 14 N. Mississippi Ave., Atlantic City, N.J. on Saturday, August 25th. The event’s preshow Dylan Art and Bev party is at the Noyes Arts Garage/ Arts Alley (Just short steps away, also on Mississippi Avenue)
Dylan Fest AC began in 2015 to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s first hooking up with Levon & the Hawks (later to become The Band) in August 1965, in Somers Point, N.J., along with the enduring musical relationship between Dylan and members of The Band which continues today. The event is the brainchild of Jeff Schwachter, a musician and artist who performs in The 5 Believers and with Dead Reckoning in “Dylan & The Dead Experience.”
As with 2015’s inaugural Dylan Fest AC, the lobby of Dante Hall will be transformed into a Dylan Museum with original artwork (some for sale) by regional artists including Mike Bell, Victor Perez, and Schwachter, as well as vintage posters, photos and other Bob Dylan and The Band-related memorabilia.

Bakery is the presenting sponsor of Dylan Fest 2016, with additional sponsorships and support from WZXL 100.7 FM, ArtC, Ducktown Tavern, Grass Roots Music Shop, Mainstay Marketplace, the Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University and Dante Hall.
