Willie Nelson is throwing a day-long music festival at his Luck, TX ranch this spring.
The Luck Banquet, which will be held March 18, is an event “dedicated to cultivating and celebrating the evolution of our American roots.” According to Rolling Stone Country, the festival is set to feature 20 country, rock, folk and soul artists that will be announced in the coming weeks.
The event will take place at the same time as the 2016 South by Southwest Music Festival in nearby Austin, TX. Nelson says that the event will feature culinary creations from famed Austin chefs and booths featuring wares from local businesses.
The Luck Banquet will feature two stages, including a “revival tent” year the ranch’s chapel and a main stage that will be stationed near Nelson’s front porch.
“We believe that the best way to honor the true Americana story is by embracing the spirit of the movement and harboring a community that pushes boundaries – celebrating the wild, gritty and ultimately beautiful work of artists we love,” a spokesperson for Luck Productions said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone Country. “The support of Willie, and the opportunity to revive ‘Luck’ as an artistic gathering place, is a gift.”
