A two-day charity festival in honour of Fleetwood Mac is set to take place in Los Angeles next month.

The Best Fest is a series of events that pays tribute to specific bands and artists, with a number of famous musicians coming together to celebrate their work.

A Fleetwood Mac edition of The Best Fest will run at LA’s Fonda Theatre from February 9-10. The line-up includes performances from Mark Ronson, The Kills‘ Alison Mosshart, Joanna Newsom, Cold War Kids, Karen Elson, comedians Sarah Silverman and Will Forte, plus special guests.

Proceeds will go to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and the Sweet Stuff Foundation.

As Pitchfork reports, previous Best Fest events have paid tribute to the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Rolling Stones and more in previous years.

Fleetwood Mac were recently inducted into the 2016 Grammy Hall Of Fame, along with Blondie, and The Grateful Dead.

The annual inductees include both singles and album recordings, all of which must be at least 25 years old. The recordings are chosen for their “historical and cultural significance”. Fleetwood Mac’s self-titled album was inducted this year.
