SXSW: Heartbreaker Banquet Returns to Willie Nelson's "Luck, Texas" for Fourth Annual Music Event

 

Luck TX SXSW2012 15 Gary ClarkJr SXSW2012 22 ShovelsandRope SXSW2012 01 Luck TX SXSW2012 11

We attended the first Heartbreaker Banquet in 2012 and it remains one of our favorite concert-going experiences ever. Taking place in the fictional western town of "Luck, TX", built on Willie Nelson's ranch for his movie, Red Headed Stranger, this respite from the craziness and crowds of SXSW has a history of curating amazing talent; striking a balance between established acts and those about to blow up. In 2012, we got to see Gary Clark Jr, Father John Misty and Shovels & Rope before they went on to national acclaim.

This year, you'll get to see Willie Nelson & Family headline. They'll be joined on the main stage by Hurray For The Riff Raff, Nikki Lane, Leon Bridges, Heartless Bastards, Delta Spirit, Clear Plastic Masks, Elle King, JP Harris, Horse Thief, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, Insects Vs. Robots, and Lily Meola.

The Revival Tent stage will feature Butch Walker, Angel Olsen, Israel Nash,Joseph, Lindi Ortega, The Deslondes,Hamilton Leithauser, Matt Sucich, and an “In The Round” song swap hosted by Jonny Burke and featuring Langhorne Slim, Luke Bell, Daniel Romano, and Hugh Masterson.

The event will take place on Thursday, March 19 with doors at 12:00pm. Tickets go on sale March 3, and can be purchased at www.heartbreakerbanquet.com.  See the press release below for all the juicy details.
