Norah Jones, Jakob Dylan, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, Butch Walker, Midlake, Jonathan Tyler, Nikki Lane, Robert Ellis, Ceren & Jason Lee and more will be backed by the legendary Cabin Down Below Band to honor the living legacy of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Ticket proceeds from this once-in-a-lifetime show benefit The Texas Music Project and the Greater Denton Arts Council.
Petty Fest has been described by The New York Times as “one of the most jubilant events of the year” and by Rolling Stone as “an experience that is equal parts concert and celebration,” this event will showcase an extraordinary and eclectic array of artists paying tribute to the music of Tom Petty with unprecedented performances of their favorite Petty songs.
A portion of the proceeds from the evening’s event will go to The Texas Music Project, a grassroots resource that develops and produces music education programs, and the Greater Denton Arts Council, which provides foundational support for Denton’s artists and community arts organizations in the Greater Denton area. Since The Best Fest began raising funds for charity at their events, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars at multiple sold out shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville, Chicago, Seattle, Dublin, New Orleans, San Francisco and Austin.
