Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic and Fireworks will be back in person this year, and it's coming to Austin FC's Q2 Stadium with a star-studded 10-act lineup as the stadium's first ever concert.
The Austin country music legend will head to the home of Austin's first major league team with acts including himself (and family), Austin-area acts Midland and Asleep at the Wheel, Tyler Childers, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Brothers Osborne, Charley Crockett, Allison Russel, Particle Kid and Steve Earle & the Dukes.
Austin FC President Andy Loughnane made the announcement at the stadium early Friday morning and said the crew "can't think of a better first concert for Q2 Stadium." Matthew McConaughey, Austin FC part-owner and Austin's Minister of Culture, seemed to agree.
“Q2 Stadium is quickly becoming a host for the biggest parties in Austin, and there’s no one better to kick off our first-ever concert than with the one and only living legend, and a local to Austinites, Willie Nelson,” McConaughey said.
The concert will come packed with Fourth of July fun, including fireworks, 10 hours of live music, food and more, at Q2 Stadium on Monday, July 4.
