For the first time in 33 years, Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic will venture outside his home state of Texas. From its beginning in 1973 in Dripping Springs, Texas, the event has been hosted in various incarnations in cities throughout Texas. Its main purpose was to bring musicians and fans from all walks of life together to celebrate the day. From 1995-1999, the event was held in Luckenbach, before moving to Austin in 2000.
Since its inception, the Picnic has drawn over a quarter-million music lovers, due to the iconic status and performances of Nelson and his impressive array of musicians. This year’s Picnic takes another bold step forward, as in addition to Nelson & Family, he’s tapped alt country vets Son Volt, the recently reunited Old 97’s, southern rockers Drive By Truckers and singer - songwriter Amos Lee to join help celebrate our nation’s birthday.
