The World of Bob Dylan 2023 returns to in-person programming this year and will feature dozens of panel discussions, exhibitions, roundtables, book launches, film screenings and more – all alongside keynote events featuring some of our greatest critics, musicians and scholars.
This year’s event will run alongside an even larger five-day festival of music, literature, and ideas called Switchyard that runs from May 30-June 4. During the day, it features lively talks and discussions with some of our leading writers and thinkers, including Art Spiegelman, Maia Kobabe, Natasha Tretheway, Valeria Luiselli, and many more. In the evening, Switchyard will feature headliner musical acts on stage at the historic Cain’s Ballroom and an afterparty showcase on the Horton Records Stage at the Hyatt.
We recommend that all World of Dylan attendees register for Switchyard. For a very modest price increase, it offers access to the full array of events including The World of Bob Dylan and all live-music events. VIP pricing options include preferential access, a dedicated lounge, and seating at Cain’s Ballroom.
