2017 Outlaw Festival Plans Series of Events

outlaw-music-festival

With their loose interpretation of the term “Outlaw” and questionable curation skills, Blackbird Presents, who’s also behind many of the recent tribute concerts to country legends, has once again commissioned the Outlaw Music Festival for 2017. The inaugural festival last year held in at the Pavilion on Montage Mountain on Sunday, September 18th saw Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Sheryl Crow, Brothers Osborne, and the Chris Robinson Brotherhood attend, deftly timed to make use of much of the talent that was in the region for Willie’s Farm Aid the day before, just like their Waylon tribute did with Willie’s 2015 4th of July Picnic.

The 2017 Outlaw Music Festival will actually be a series of events, or a tour if you will, consisting of six total stops throughout July hitting up New Orleans, Dallas, Detroit, Milwaukee, Syracuse, NY, and Rogers, AR. The round robbin cast of performers that will be different for each stop includes Willie Nelson and his Family Band, Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, The Avett Brothers, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Sheryl Crow, Margo Price, Hayes Carll, My Morning Jacket, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Sheryl Crow, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Sheryl Crow, and Sheryl Crow.

Along with the music, each date will feature numerous festival attractions, including local food, craft beer, and handmade crafts by local artisans (hippies). Tickets will go on sale April 21st.
