A Letter from Team Luck

Tuesday, March 12th, 2019

 

With our last 2019 tickets out the door, we want to thank everyone who gives a damn about Luck Reunion. Enough to enter every single Lucky Draw. To have the cajones to track down our cell numbers to ask for secret codes “on the DL”. To document well-vetted evidence of ticketing collusion. Every one of you, even the conspiracy theorists, have our sincere gratitude.

In all honestly, we are blown away by the overwhelming number of people who want to join us in Luck. When we launched this thing we couldn’t have imagined that it would become what it is today, and are amazed that the response grows each year. This year is no exception.

We love Luck, TX, and are passionate about creating the best possible music experience here. And we believe that making that experience intimate – 2000 capped sold tickets to be exact – to give our guests unparalleled access to this special place and kick-ass performances – is integral to providing an unforgettable adventure. Keeping the soul of the Reunion alive in Luck matters deeply to us and we have no intent to change the core event, it’s capacity, or the overall experience for our fans.

At the end of the day, you all are what make this so special. Having an audience that is engaged, passionate, and truly cares about the music – the reason why we started this whole thing – is all we could ever ask for. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us.

Texas chefs featured at Willie Nelson’s 2019 Luck Reunion Potluck

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

www.austin.eater.com
by:  

As part of the legendary Willie Nelson’s annual music festival Luck Reunion during South by Southwest, the true Texan musician is hosting a special dinner led by female Texas chefs out on his ranch space in Spicewood, Texas.

The PotLuck Dinner, which takes place the evening before the music festival starts on Wednesday, March 13, features five notable chefs from the state:

  • Eater Dallas chef of 2016 Misti Norris of cured meats and fermentation palace Petra and the Beast
  • Austin chef Bonnie Savage of Southern restaurant Olamaie
  • James Beard Award-nominated Houston chef Anita Jaisinghani of essential modern Indian restaurant Pondicheri
  • Now-Austin-based Top Chef winner Kristen Kish of the Line Austin Hotel restaurant Arlo Grey
  • San Antonio chef Anne Ng of Bakery Lorraine

“We look forward to tasting their dishes and hearing their stories as they show us how their heritage influences their cooking,” Austin Food & Wine Alliance executive director Mariam Parker told Eater.

The evening also includes reception cocktails from Jessica Sanders, the owner of Austin cocktail bar Drink.Well.

Luckily, the meal will end with a performance by Nelson. It benefits Nelson’s nonprofit Farm Aid and is organized by the Austin Food & Wine Alliance and Salt & Time’s Ben Runkle. While tickets to the dinner are already sold out, those who will manage to snag tickets to the Luck Reunion festival (which are available on a staggered rolling basis up until the festival) will be given the opportunity to buy admissions to the meal too.

The Luck Reunion music festival takes place the next day on Thursday, March 14, out on the ranch, with performances by artists like Mavis Staples, Shakey Graves, Nathaniel Rateliff, and many others.

Austin, TX — Jan. 30, 2019 — Luck Reunion, the flagship festival of Luck Productions, is pleased to announce the third installment of their fan-forward ticket buying initiative, Lucky Draw Live. On Feb. 7th, fans looking to get lucky with tickets to the festival will be treated to an intimate performance from Hayes Carll andSouthwest® On The Rise to Luck 2018 winner, Thomas Csorba at the legendary Cactus Cafe on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. Since 1979, Cactus Cafe has been a refuge for songwriters, Texans, and music fans, which aligns directly with Luck’s motto of “celebrating 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.”

The event, presented by Southwest Airlines and KUT Radio, is centered around Luck Reunion’s lineup announcement for 2019, but will also feature special Luck-centric door prizes, and a chance for fans to buy tickets for Luck Reunion in-person. A pool of 300 Luck Reunion tickets will go on sale at 5:30 pm at the Cactus Cafe ticket office. Out of respect for the university, fans are being asked to arrive no earlier than 4:00 pm. Doors to the venue will open at 6:45 pm CST, with the show starting at 7:00 pm. For those fans not able to attend, KUT will announce the Luck Reunion 2019 lineup on-air during the event. Click here for more information.

Lucky Draw Live will also reveal the three 2019 Southwest: On The Rise to Luck artists, who have been selected from dozens of submissions to vie for a performance slot on the Luck Reunion main stage. These finalists will be featured on Southwest.fm, allowing website visitors to learn more and vote to help one artist rise to the stage and join the Luck Family. Thomas Csorba, who is last year’s Southwest: On The Rise to Luck winning artist, will announce the 2019 Luck Reunion line-up. Since 2015, Southwest’s Artist On The Rise program has supported up-and-coming talent to reach new heights in their careers.

After the Feb. 7th event at Cactus Cafe, there will be one remaining “Lucky Draw” with details available only on Luck Reunion’s Instagram and Facebook. These four Lucky Draws are Luck’s answer to fans looking for a smoother ticket buying process, allowing patrons to submit for their chance to buy tickets without racing the clock or cursing their internet connection.

Luck Reunion presented by Southwest, will take place on March 14th in Luck, TX, less than thirty miles outside of Austin, and feature both artists who have defined American music and artists who are redefining it. Luck Reunion performers, or “Luck Family” as they’ve grown to be called, all take after the event’s gracious host, free-wheeling legend Willie Nelson, in that they bow to nothing but inspiration, refuse to play it safe, and are always open for collaboration. In between once in a lifetime sets from their favorite new artists, fans will have plenty of chances to refuel in style with food options curated by Austin Food + Wine, celebrating Central Texas chefs who are pushing boundaries and redefining what it means to have a cookout in the Hill Country.
