Willie Nelson has pulled together an all-star lineup for the second annual Outlaw Music Festival, but the event won’t simply be a one-off thing in 2017. This year, the festival is going on tour, and joining the Red Headed Stranger for six shows over two weeks is a genre-defying roster of artists, including Jason Isbell, Bob Dylan and a host of other well-known acts.

Sponsored by Nelson and Blackbird Presents, the Outlaw Music Festival began in 2016 as a day-long event in Scranton, Pa., celebrating artists that do their own thing and go against the flow in the music world. With a focus on local food and craft beer, the 2017 festival has expanded from one show to six, spread out over two weeks, July 1-16. The 2017 Outlaw Music Festival Tour will kick off in New Orleans, La., on July 1, before heading to Dallas, Texas, on July 2; Rogers, Ark., on July 6; Detroit, Mich., on July 8; Milwaukee, Wisc., on July 6; and Syracuse, N.Y., on July 16.

Isbell and the 400 Unit will join the 2017 Outlaw Music Festival Tour for three days, while Dylan and his band will hop in for two. Other artists joining Nelson, Isbell and Dylan throughout the six-date festival tour include the Avett Brothers, Margo Price, Sheryl CrowLukas Nelson & Promise of the RealHayes Carll, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and My Morning Jacket.
