Last year’s Luck Reunion was officially rained out, when Fire Marshals closed the main stage because of thunder and lightening, and sent guests to their cars and home. But the rain didn’t stop the music, artists and fans gathered in barns and saloons to play and enjoy music. Willie Nelson and others played under a small tent late into the night.
Luck Reunion 2017 is scheduled for March 16th.
For tickets and information:
Luck Reunion guitar picks from last year, by the late great Guthrie Thomas.
“And, of course, Willie’s Luck Reunion in Luck, Texas at his ranch that Willie is hosting today and tomorrow most certainly requires a few guitar picks to play with. Designed by, Dr. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt of The Family and a cowboy who knows how to ride a horse backwards but very little else…”
M. Ward, Ray Benson, Valerie June, the Felice Brothers and Ray Wylie Hubbard are among more than a dozen performers added to the schedule for Willie Nelson’s annual Luck Reunion, set for March 16 at Nelson’s hill country property just west of Austin in the midst of South By Southwest.
Here’s the current lineup, spread across three stages, with more still to be added:
World Headquarters Stage: Willie Nelson & Family, Conor Oberst & Friends featuring M. Ward and the Felice Brothers, Margo Price, Valerie June, Big Thief, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Insects Vs. Robots, Devon Gilfillian, Indianola, Bee Caves and a special surprise headlining guest.
Chapel Stage: Lillie Mae, Andrew Combs, Twain, Kelsey Waldon, Frankie Lee, National Reserve, Red Shahan and more.
This year’s lineup for Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion concert event certainly packs a punch. On Mar. 16, Margo Price, Conor Oberst and more will trek to Nelson’s ranch for a day of seriously cool vibes.
Parker Millsap, Willie’s son Lukas Nelson and his band the Promise of the Real, Aaron Lee Tasjan
Big Thief, Brent Cobb, The Wild Reeds, Lillie Mae, Insects vs Robots, Paul Thorn with the McCrary Sisters, Valley Queen, Devon Gilfillian, Bee Caves and the National Reserve round out the lineup so far.
The event coincides with Austin’s infamous South by Southwest festival. However, you don’t need to attend SXSW to gain access to Luck Reunion 2017. In fact, the whole getaway seems like a nice break from an otherwise chaotic scene taking over Austin all throughout mid-March.
The whole day takes place at Willie’s place in Luck, Texas, about 40 minutes West of downtown Austin. The gathering began in 2016 but is transforming into a “movement” of sorts. The Luck Reunion is dedicated to “cultivating and celebrating the evolution of our American roots.”
So what does that mean in practice? It means a bunch of artists, musicians and chefs hanging out and not compromising on their art. The events pays honor to artists who came before while still embracing new sounds and styles of modern roots music.
Last year, Nelson hosted the first Luck, Reunion in Austin before also scheduling an event in Nashville. No word on if another event near Nashville is in the works.
General admission tickets go on sale soon for $70 plus fees, plus a new VIP ticket option for $250 plus fees. An additional rare “ultimate” VIP package sells for $3,500, and only six are available.
The Reunion also provides super convenient bus tickets from the famous Arlyn Studios in Austin for $30. Alternatively, fans can park at the ranch for $20 per car.
Tickets go on sale Jan. 21 at 12 p.m., so don’t dawdle. The event will absolutely sell out in a hurry.

Beginning as an exclusive event hosted on Willie Nelson’s Luck, Texas ranch, “Luck Reunion” is a movement dedicated to cultivating and celebrating the evolution of our American roots. Our goal is to attract musicians, artisans, and chefs, who like the outlaws and outliers before them, follow their dreams without compromise. By collaborating with a group of creators who share our vision, we aim to celebrate the legacies still among us, while lifting up the new crop of individuals who share a respect for those who blazed the trails before them. We are on a mission to cultivate the new while showing honor to influence. Join us.
