Circuit of the Americas
Live Nation, C3 Presents and Circuit of The Americas (COTA) are proud to announce the return of Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic to Circuit of The Americas. The legendary Willie Nelson plays host to one of America’s most celebrated festivals, and the 4th of July Picnic returns to COTA for the second year. Joining Willie at this year’s party is a star-studded cavalcade of his friends.
The 43rd edition of the picnic takes place at the Circuit of The Americas’ Austin360 Amphitheater on Monday, July 4th. The all-day event on America’s birthday features performances from more than 20 artists on two stages, including Willie Nelson & Family, Brantley Gilbert, Jamey Johnson featuring special guest Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Lee Ann Womack, Shakey Graves, Leon Russell, Jamestown Revival, Cody Johnson, Margo Price, Billy Joe Shaver, Johnny Bush, Ray Wylie Hubbard, David Allan Coe, Asleep at the Wheel, Paula Nelson, Raelyn Nelson Band, Folk Uke, Dallas Wayne, and Amber Digby.
To accommodate over 20 artists, this year’s 4th of July Picnic will once again feature two stages: the main Austin360 Amphitheater stage and a second stage located on the Grand Plaza. The Grand Plaza will have picnic tables where fans can eat, drink, celebrate and watch their favorite artists, as well as a shopping area featuring a wide variety of Texas-based vendors. This year’s picnic will also incorporate a very special fireworks display to commemorate the show and to celebrate America’s birthday.
