Willie Nelson has announced a summer tour with Alison Krauss. The dates are scheduled during and after the first leg of the Outlaw Music Festival, which Nelson revealed on March 5.

This year’s festival lineup includes Willie Nelson & Family, Phil Lesh & Friends, the Avett Brothers, Alison Krauss, The Revivalists, Counting Crows, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Old Crow Medicine Show, Dawes, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Steve Earle & the Dukes. (For artists performing in various cities, refer to the specific dates below.)

North America’s biggest touring music festival starts on June 14. Tickets for the festival and Nelson’s shows are available here.

Each festival tour date also features a unique range of festival attractions including local cuisine, craft beers, and crafts by local artisans to provide music fans a complete experience.

“We had so much fun on the Outlaw Music Festival Tour last year that we couldn’t wait to get back out on the road with everyone,” said Nelson in the March 5 announcement. The legend turns 86 on April 29.

The inaugural Outlaw Music Festival made its debut in 2016 in Scranton, PA featuring Willie Nelson & Family, Neil Young + Promise of the Real, Sheryl Crow and others. The sold-out show was so well received that Nelson and Blackbird Presents decided to take their “band of outlaws” on the road as a touring festival in both 2017 and 2018.

Last year, the Outlaw Tour hosted more than 200,000 fans in amphitheaters and arenas all over the country.
