Willie Nelson's annual Outlaw Music Festival Tour has officially announced the first round of performers for its Summer 2019 run, which is set to kick off in Bangor, Maine, on June 14 and run through July 3. This first-ever Outlaw Music Festival rolled out in 2016, but this year's festivities mark its third year as a touring festival.

Performers will include 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, Steve Earle & the Dukes, Hayes Carll, Casey Donahew, Matt Mays, Colter Wall and Particle Kid. That lineup is just the first round of performing artists to be announced, with more acts to follow in the coming weeks.

"We had so much fun on the Outlaw Music Festival last year that we couldn't wait to get back out on the road with everyone," Nelson comments in a press release. Many of the performers slotted to appear on the road are repeat participants in the festival. Artists such as Rateliff have explained that, both in the Outlaw Music Festival and in events such as Farm Aid, Nelson fosters a lasting bond with the performers that he brings on the road, essentially creating a traveling family.

In addition to a jam-packed lineup, each date also features a variety of local food and beverage vendors, along with a selection of crafts by local artisans. Tickets for all announced dates will go on sale on Friday, March 8, at 10AM local time. For ticketing information and details about VIP bundles, visit the festival's official website.
