“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. I just can’t wait to get back on the road again,” says Willie Nelson.
“Our annual Outlaw Music Festival Tour has grown to become this incredible family of artists that deliver must-see performances every night,” said Keith Wortman (Co-Founder Outlaw Music Festival Tour), “we are honored to present these once in a lifetime lineups all over the country.”
Mike’s Hard Lemonade Seltzer will also be joining the 2022 Outlaw Music Festival Tour as the “Official Hard Seltzer” hosting pop up experiences, giveaways and more at select dates. The inaugural Outlaw Music Festival made its debut in 2016 in Scranton, PA. The sold-out show was so well received that Blackbird and Nelson have developed it into one of North America’s biggest annual touring franchises. Musicians such as Robert Plant, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Eric Church, Bonnie Raitt, Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Sheryl Crow, Sturgill Simpson, The Avett Brothers and many more have been a part of the Outlaw Tour, sharing unforgettable music memories and unique vendor villages with local food, drinks and stopping in Live Nation amphitheaters across the country.
