It looks like Austin-based musicians and fans are headed back to the 'Dillo this fall.

ALL ATX, Austin’s biggest local music fundraising concert, announced its 2017 lineup, as well as new changes to the event in a news release from C3 Presents on Monday.

The concert is slated for Oct. 29 and will take place at Auditorium Shores for the first time, the news release said. This year’s lineup features John Fogerty, Shakey Graves, Jack Ingram, Night Drive and Eric Tessmer.

"ALL ATX is extremely excited to host our event at Auditorium Shores this year," fundraiser founder Gary Keller said in the news release. "It will be an amazing night of celebrating and supporting what made and continues to make our city great: music."

Event proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit four music nonprofits in Austin:  Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, the SIMS Foundation, the Austin Music Foundation and Black Fret. The news release said last year the event raised $500,000 for the nonprofits.

This year’s theme is “Back to the Armadillo,” which is a nod to the Armadillo World Headquarters, a historic music venue from the ‘70s where iconic Texan musicians—including Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughan—played on a regular basis.

To go along with the evening’s theme, local musicians will perform covers of songs written by artists who performed at the venue, the news release said. A studio album of the renditions will also be available for purchase the night of the show and at Waterloo Records beginning Oct. 29.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday, Sept. 21, at 10 a.m. More information can be found at www.ALLATX.org.
