We recently learned that Kesha would make an appearance at Coachella 2016, but a performance during the festival was not confirmed, we do have news of the singer's return to the stage after her very public and emotional legal battle against producer Dr. Luke. Dylan Fest, a two-day concert full of Bob Dylan tribute performances organized by The Best Fest, has revealed its lineup, with Kesha on the list!

Dylan Fest will take place on May 23 and 24 in Nashville, TN at Ryman Auditorium. May 24, 2016 is Bob Dylan's 75th birthday.

The news of Kesha's return to the stage came in the form of the new Dylan Fest poster posted to Best Fest's Twitter account (via Pitchfork / UPROXX):

Kesha previously covered Dylan's song "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" in 2011, which you can watch right here.

The official lineup for Dylan Fest includes appearances and performances by Emmylou Harris, Jason Isbell, Kacey Musgraves, Jenny Lewis, Ann Wilson, Kurt Vile, Wynonna & The Big Noise, Boz Scaggs, Kesha, City & Colour, Moon Taxi, Brothers Osborne, Dhani Harrison, John Paul White, Charlie McCoy, Nikki Lane, Brendan Benson, Rayland Baxter, Holly Williams, Langhorne Slim, Eric Pulido of Midlake, Ruby Amanfu, Karen Elson, Amanda Shires, Danny Masterson, Bijou Phillips, The Whigs, Cory Chisel, Adriel Denae, Jonathan Tyler, Robert Ellis, Shelly Colvin, Tommy Emmanuel and more (via Best Fest).
