Willie Nelson & Family return as headliners for the 2019 Outlaw Music Festival. A second leg of dates in September featuring Robert Plant, Gov’t Mule, Bonnie Raitt, The Avett Brothers and more has been added to the schedule, which previously consisted of 10 shows including performances as part of the Mountain Jam and Summerfest festivals.

Each night of the tour features a different lineup. The second leg begins on September 6 in Gilford, New Hampshire with Willie Nelson & Family, Raitt, Krauss, Brothers Osborne and an opener TBD. Then, the tour makes a stop in New York City at the historic Forest Hills Stadium on September 11. Nelson will be joined by Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Krauss and Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real.

Next comes a visit to Virginia Beach on September 14 featuring Willie, Bonnie, The Avett Brothers, Alison, Lukas and an opener TBD. A similar lineup, sans The Avetts, plays Raleigh on September 15 before Plant, Krauss, Brothers Osborne and a TBD opener team with Willie Nelson & Family in Noblesville, Indiana on September 20. The tour is currently slated to end at Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati on September 22.

“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,” said Willie Nelson when the jaunt was first announced. “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,” added Keith Wortman, CEO of Blackbird Presents.
