Willie Nelson’s Music Festival Luck Reunion Features an Awesome Texas Food Lineup
by: Nadia Chaudhury

In the midst of South by Southwest is Austin legendary musician Willie Nelson’s music festival, Luck Reunion. This year’s edition, taking place on Thursday, March 15, will feature a unique assortment of Texas chefs.

The food lineup, put together for the Austin Food & Wine Alliance by Salt & Time’s Ben Runkle, goes beyond the usual offerings, from Indian-Texas fare (Puli-Ra) to Southern cuisine (Hoover’s Cooking), new-school barbecue (LeRoy & Lewis), high-end Mexican (Mixtli), to tacos (Vaquero Taquero).
Everything will be found at what is being referred to as the Austin Food & Wine Alliance Corral. The full list of chefs follows below.
The festival takes place at Luck, Texas, which is part of Nelson’s ranch. The music lineup includes Kurt Vile, Nikki Lane, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, and of course, Nelson himself.

Luck Reunion is found at 1100 Bee Creek, Spicewood, Texas, with everything beginning at 11 a.m. Tickets will be available on a rolling basis starting sometime in early March.

Profits from Luck Reunion will go towards a new grant for the Austin Food & Wine Alliance. Named the Willie Nelson’s Luck, TX grant, it will give $5,000 to a Texas chef.

Luck Reunion 2017 (March 16th)

Friday, January 20th, 2017


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.
