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.
