Willie Nelson’s 4th Of July Picnic Announces Hybrid Livestream/Concert Film
Willie Nelson’s 4th Of July Picnic announced a hybrid livestream/concert film. The virtual event will take place in place of Willie’s legendary festival and begins at 3:30 p.m. CT on the 4th of July.
Presented by Nelson’s Luck Productions, the online happening will see livestream performances from Willie Nelson & Family (from Willie’s Pedernales Studios in Texas), Sheryl Crow, Ziggy Marley, Margo Price, Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Kurt Vile, Asleep At The Wheel, Charley Crockett, Kinky Friedman, Robert Earl Keen, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Shakey Graves, Particle Kid and more. The streaming event will also feature performances from Picnics past and more.
“Our goal with the 2020 Picnic is to bring it back to what it was—in the only way we can during these times,” co-founder of Luck Productions Ellee Fletcher Durniak said in a statement. “We were set to host this year’s event at Luck, to welcome the Picnic back to its hill country home. The Picnic is really one of a kind, it has always been scrappy. Cars on fire. Mass arrests. You name it…it happened at the Picnic.”
Willie’s 4th of July Picnic livestream/concert film will benefit a number of organizations including All Together ATX, Six Square, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, SIMS Foundation and Central Texas Foodbank with one dollar from each ticket also heading to The Luck Reunion Fund.
