Luck Reunion gathers a wide-ranging roster of Americana, country, rock, and folk performers who will join headliner and host Willie Nelson in the festival’s mission of continuing the American roots music narrative. Artists will perform across three stages: the World Headquarters Stage overlooking Nelson’s private “headquarters” hangout; the Revival Tent, a camp meeting-style performance space; and the Chapel Stage, situated in the town’s intimate 40-seat church. The lineup is as follows:
World Headquarters Stage:

“We are extremely excited about this year’s lineup. Not only are we personally fans of each act coming out, but we are also lucky to call many of them friends,” said the Luck Productions team. “The Luck family is growing every year, and we are proud to announce the newest additions.”
Between sets, attendees can sip craft cocktails in the Tito’s Handmade Vodka saloon and at the event’s several bars which will also be serving Lagunitas, the official beer of Luck Reunion. The definitive getaway during SXSW, Luck Reunion offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience Nelson’s beloved hill country property that served as the set for his Red Headed Stranger film; repurposed for this exclusive event to showcase boutique vendors; artists; and chefs for a day of entertainment.
The entire experience will be captured live by SiriusXM‘s “Outlaw Country” channel for an exclusive broadcast following the festival.
On the eve of the concert event Luck will host the third annual Chefs’ Pot Luck dinner benefitting Wholesome Wave, a national nonprofit empowering under-served consumers to make healthier food choices by making produce more affordable. Guests will enjoy a seated, multi-course meal by Wholesome Wave CEO and founder Chef Michel Nischan and an all-star chef lineup including: celebrity chef and restaurateur Scott Conant, Chef Dean Fearing, fondly recognized as the “father of Southwestern cuisine,” and James Beard Foundation-nominated chefs Bruce Kalman from Los Angeles and David Bancroft of Alabama. Local participating talent includes James Beard Award-winning chefs Bryce Gilmore and David Bull, Andrew Wiseheart of Contigo, and Alma Alcocer-Thomas of Alcomar.
