The Outlaw Music Festival, which began in 2016 as a one-off event in Pennsylvania, will hit the road in 2017, bringing a star-heavy lineup to Starplex Pavilion on Sunday, July 2.

The initial lineup for the Dallas stop includes Willie Nelson & Family, the Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Margo Price, Hayes Carll, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. Willie Nelson recently played a two-night stint at the Granada Theater in January, while the Avett Brothers and Sheryl Crow are making their first local appearances since 2016 and 2014, respectively.

Dallas is one of only six stops for the tour, which starts in New Orleans on July 1 before heading to Rogers, Arkansas, on July 6; Detroit on July 8; Milwaukee on July 9; and Syracuse, New York, on July 16. Nelson and Crow will play at every stop, and performers in other cities include Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Bob Dylan and His Band, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, and My Morning Jacket.

Each tour date will feature a range of festival attractions including local cuisine, craft beers, and crafts by local artisans.

Tickets go on sale to the general public through LiveNation.com on Friday, April 21, at 10 am.
