Willie Nelson‘s Luck Ranch will host the inaugural Lucktoberfest, set to take place in Spicewood, TX this October with a lineup featuring Tanya Tucker, Orville Peck, and the Black Opry Revue.
The ten-day country music festival will kick off on October 28th with Paul Cauthen’s Big Velvet Revue, with special guests to be announced. Orville Peck will headline the following night, which is billed as an “Outlaw Masquerade Ball,” with burlesque dancers and saloon acts to further the festival’s Texas theme.
The country and western festivities will continue with a rodeo-themed event featuring Tanya Tucker alongside Sierra Ferrell and Nikki Lane. Other Texas traditions will be represented during additional theme nights, including German Oktoberfest featuring Alex Meixner and a Dia de los Muertos experience featuring Los Lobos, and children are invited to trick-or-treat on Halloween night.
In recognition of the Lone Star State’s diversity, Fantastic Negrito will headline a night anchored by Black Opry Revue, a music collective dedicated to celebrating and supporting Black artists, followed by Luck Night Market featuring Sasami the following night, and Desert Roses Queer Southern Glamour fashion and variety show the night after that. The event will wrap up on November 6th with the Bloody Mary Morning musical brunch featuring Bob Schneider and Shiny Ribs.
“Luck at its core is all about community, where everyone can come as they are,” said Luck Presents founder Matt Bizer. “By collaborating with an amazing and diverse group of local and national curators, we are celebrating Texas by holding space for people to be themselves and share their incredible talents.”
