Correction: The Bohemian Foundation was founded in 2001 by Pat Stryker, not 2011 as reported. The Collegian regrets its error.

The Bohemian Foundation is bringing back Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest this summer. The massive outdoor music festival hosts more than 80 bands in Old Town on Aug. 12, 13 and 14.

The three-night event culminates with three headliners, which were announced last Friday.

The festival will host G. Love & Special Sauce Friday night, Tedeschi Trucks Band on Saturday and Asleep At The Wheel on Sunday.

G. Love and Special Sauce is an alternative hip-hop group from Philadelphia, Penn.

Tedeschi Trucks Band consists of Derek Trucks, the Grammy Award-winning guitarist who also plays in the Allman Brothers Band. Susan Tedeschi is a Grammy nominated blues and soul artist known for her performances in Soul Stew Revival.

Asleep At The Wheel is a country-western band originally from Paw Paw, W. Va. and winners of nine Grammy Awards since 1970.
The event is outdoors and free throughout the weekend.

The Bohemian Foundation was founded in 2011 by Pat Stryker and donates to music and art programs in Fort Collins, as well as a plethora of non-profits.
