American Eagle to host Summer Music Festival featuring Bob Dylan

Dreamtime has been around long enough that we're on an eclectic list of sites that PR firms send their puffery to (my favorites are the wine/booze press releases, thanks to our link from our friend at The Pour). The following doesn't have anything to do with Theme Time Radio Hour, except for Mr. D., of course. But, what the heck. We're in the slow season, and any news is good news. So, from Christina at The Advance Guard...

Just stopping by to share some news. American Eagle, who I'm so excited to be working with, is hosting it's first music festival featuring an eclectic mix of big artists, including Bob Dylan.

We'd love for you to share this, if you feel it is something your community would be interested in.

That said let me get to the details...... a two-day summer music festival that American Eagle Outfitters is putting on in Pittsburgh on August 8th and 9th. The New American Music Union festival combines some of the most innovative and popular artists with fifteen of the country's best college bands and will be hosted by host Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The line up includes Bob Dylan and His Band, The Raconteurs, The Roots, Spoon and more.

The New American Music Union will take place in Pittsburgh's historic SouthSide Works, which was home to glass factories, steel and iron mills in the 1800s. Today, the area features an eclectic mix of residential neighborhoods, restaurants, shops and businesses, including the headquarters of American Eagle Outfitters, Inc.

The college band performances will be judged by music industry influencers, journalists and fellow musicians. The winning college band will receive a full-day recording session in a top Los Angeles studio valued at $10,000. American Eagle will support the winning college band by promoting its recording on and in AE stores across the country.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, May 16th and you can find all the details, complete band line up and the latest information at
