SPICEWOOD, Texas (CelebrityAccess) — Willie Nelson is once again partnering with promoter Blackbird Presents to bring his Outlaw Music Festival Tour on the road for a summer tour in 2019.
The touring festival boasts a lineup that varies based on market but includes Willie Nelson & Family, Phil Lesh & Friends, The Avett Brothers, Alison Krauss, The Revivalists, Counting Crows, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Old Crow Medicine Show, Dawes, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Steve Earle & The Dukes, Hayes Carll, Casey Donahew, Matt Mays, Colter Wall, and Particle Kid.
Additional artists will be announced. As well, the festival includes offerings of local cuisine, craft beers, and crafts by local artisans.
The festival first debuted as a one-off in Scranton, PA in 2016 and featured Willie Nelson & Family, Neil Young + Promise of the Real, Sheryl Crow, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Lee Ann Womack, and others.
Following the success of the sold-out 2016 show, Willie and Blackbird decided to take the show on the road in 2017 and 2018. Last year, with a lineup that included Bob Dylan, Alison Krauss, Sturgill Simpson, and Cheryl Crow, the festival attracted more than 200,000 fans.
“We had so much fun on the Outlaw Music Festival Tour last year that we couldn’t wait to get back out on the road with everyone,” says Willie Nelson.
“The fans told us what they wanted on the Outlaw Music Festival Tour in 2019, and I am thrilled to have delivered this to them. This summer’s lineup with Willie Nelson and our caravan of artists continues to take the Outlaw Music Festival experience to a whole new level,” says Keith Wortman, CEO of Blackbird Presents.
