The Outlaw Music Festival Tour, the annual package tour highlighting artists who make music outside of the mainstream, is returning in 2021. Once again headlined by Willie Nelson, the tour begins August 22nd in Texas and features a rotating cast of singer-songwriters and bands. Sturgill Simpson appears on more than half of the announced 14 dates.

Along with Nelson and the Family Band, the first show kicks off with Chris Stapleton, Ryan Bingham, and Yola playing the Germania Insurance Amphitheatre in Austin. Other artists appearing at various dates of the tour include the Avett Brothers, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Gov’t Mule, Kathleen Edwards, the U.K. duo Ida Mae, and frequent Nelson collaborator Margo Price. Lucinda Williams, who announced last month that she was recovering from a stroke she suffered in 2020, also appears on four dates.

“The Outlaw Music Festival Tour has always been about family and friends coming together for a great day of music and fun, and with the amazing group of artists joining us, this year promises to be our most special Outlaw Tour to date,” Nelson said in a statement.

Tickets to the Outlaw Music Festival Tour, presented by Blackbird Presents and Live Nation, go on sale Thursday, May 27th, at 10 a.m. local time. You can also find guaranteed seats on VividSeats.com.
