For many roots music fans, part of the SXSW experience is a pilgrimage to Willie Nelson's Luck, Texas for the annual Heartbreaker Banquet. The one-day celebration presented by Electric Lady Studios and Robot Fondue is chock-full of pop-up shops, local cuisine and curated music performances from sought-after artists.
On Monday, Heartbreaker Banquet announced its fourth annual lineup, which includes breakout acts and event favorites. As is tradition with the event, Willie Nelson will close out the night on the Medicine Show stage.
Other main stage acts include 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 performances by 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.
The high-profile event, a favorite of industry insiders and music fans alike, takes place Thursday, March 19. Tickets are available for $50 each and can be purchased at www.heartbreakerbanquet.com. Heartbreaker Banquet benefits the SIMS Foundation.
