Willie Nelson Bringing a Bunch of Friends On Unbelievably Stacked Outlaw Music Festival Tour

Throw on your cowboy hats and boots, because Willie Nelson is bringing the Outlaw Music Festival on the road this year. After the success of the festival last year, held in Scranton, Pa., it’s returning bigger, badder and better with a jaw-dropping initial list of huge names joining Willie Nelson & Family for six shows this July.

“We had such a blast launching and playing last year’s Outlaw Music Festival in Scranton, we had to take it out on the road this summer,” Willie Nelson said in the announcement. Nelson will be joined by The Avett Brothers, Bob Dylan and His Band, Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, My Morning Jacket, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Margo Price, Hayes Carll, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and many more to be announced in the next few weeks. Holy smokes, that’s a crazy amount of excellent artists.

“After last year’s Outlaw Music Festival, we made it our mission to assemble an extraordinary lineup and bring this experience to music fans all over the country,” said Keith Wortman, CEO of Blackbird Presents. “I’m looking forward to more unforgettable music moments and I’m honored to be working with these incredible musicians.”

Each date will feature a bunch of different attractions, with local cuisine, craft beers and local artisan crafts to provide each show with its own unique feel. The tour spans six cities, including New Orleans, Dallas and Milwaukee, and will likely be one of the biggest events of the year for country and folk music fans.

Tickets go on sale Friday, April 21, at 10 a.m. local time, with VIP packages, including closer seats, better parking and some exclusive merch, also available. Take look at the tour dates, and performers at each date, below, and find more info here. Last but not least, enjoy a 1999 Nelson performance from the Paste Cloud.
