Willie Nelson is bringing his annual 4th of July Picnic, with a lineup featuring some of the biggest and best names in country music, back to Austin for a second year in a row.

The country legend will once again spend the holiday at Circuit of the Americas along with more than 20 other artists from all areas of the genre. This year, fans in attendance can expect to see performances from Nelson and his Family Band, fellow Highwayman member and longtime friend Kris Kristofferson, Jamey Johnson with Alison Krauss, Lee Ann Womack, Brantley Gilbert, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Cody Johnson, Asleep at the Wheel, David Allan Coe, Leon Russell, Billy Joe Shaver, Margo Price, Shakey Graves, Dallas Wayne, Amber Digby, Jamestown Revival and Johnny Bush. Relatives Paula Nelson, the Raelyn Nelson Band and Amy Nelson’s group Folk Uke will also make appearances at the event.

Artists can be seen inside the Austin 360 Amphitheater and a smaller stage inside the venue’s Grand Plaza. Fans will be able to enjoy the show from reserved seats, standing pit areas or lawn seating, which features picnic tables that give a great view for the fireworks display at the end of the night.

Tickets range from $39.50 general admission lawn seating up to $85 for reserved seats in the Amphitheater, with VIP packages also available for $300-$500. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 20, through ticketmaster.com.
