About Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic

Long before Lollapalooza and Coachella Music Festival, there was Willie’s Picnic – an outdoor music festival that began in a small Texas town that would continue for decades.  The event has changed much in its forty-one year run, culminating into this year’s event, the 41st annual– an all-day concert just outside of Billy Bob’s Texas with a fan base spanning several generations.   At its start in 1973, the hippie movement was well under way when a 40-year-old Willie Nelson decided to hold a music festival in a field in Dripping Springs. Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Tom T. Hall headlined the festival that brought over 40,000 people to the inaugural run of what would become a Texas tradition.  Over the next 3 decades the picnic continued to hold steady in fans and entertainers, moving around various cities in Texas, from Austin to Luckenbach.   It was a big deal in 2004 when Nelson announced at a press conference in the Fort Worth Stockyards that he was bringing his picnic to one of his boyhood homes – Fort Worth.  The announcement made the front page of the Dallas Morning News and the mayor of Fort Worth gave Nelson a key to the city.
