Concertgoers can expect something a little different this year during South by Southwest. Willie Nelson will be headlining the daylong Luck Banquet at his ranch in Luck, Texas on March 18, 2016. The festival will present 20 different country, folk, rock, and soul acts, as well as cuisine from a variety of Austin chefs. There will also be a boutique where locals can sell their merchandise.
The event will look to revive Luck as "an artistic gathering place." In 1986, the ranch was the setting for Willie Nelson's movie, "The Red Headed Stranger." The festival will have two stages, and will begin with artists participating in a "song-swap set," harkening back to the days of outlaw country.
For anyone looking to get away from Austin for a little and experience the roots of American music, Luck Banquet will be the place to go - not to mention all the delicious food everyone will be tasting.
