"FLEETWOOD MAC has been such a major part of the soundtracks of our lives that it's time to honor their living legacy," says BEST FEST founder AUSTIN SCAGGS. "These shows really represent the next generation of artists giving love to their musical heroes, and raising money for two deserving charities."
Ticket sale proceeds benefit the SWEET RELIEF MUSICIANS FUND and THE SWEET STUFF FOUNDATION, two organizations committed to helping musicians and their families through times of illness and age-related disabilities.
Tickets for FLEETWOOD MAC FEST go on sale FRIDAY, JANUARY 22nd.
As always, the BEST FEST's acclaimed house band, THE CABIN DOWN BELOW BAND, will host a prodigious cast of musicians, with many more unannounced guests.
"As usual," says SCAGGS. "We have some major surprises up our sleeves."

FLEETWOOD MAC joins an expanding list of artists honored by the BEST FEST, including BOB DYLAN, TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS, THE ROLLING STONES, BRIAN WILSON and NEIL YOUNG.
