Willie Nelson to headline 2015 SXSW Heartbreaker Banquet

Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson will again headline the Heartbreaker Banquet at this year’s South By South West music conference.

The event will take place on the 19th of March at Nelson’s own ranch in Luck, Texas with a diverse range of artists playing across two different stages.

Nelson and his Family Band will headline the main Medicine Show Stage, while a host of other musicians will play sets there and in the more intimate confines of the Revival Tent.

Numerous favourites of Skin Back Alley have been announced for the banquet, including Lindi Ortega, Nikki Lane and Heartless Bastards. Also making appearances will be the likes of Hurray for the Riff Raff, Leon Bridges, Delta Spirit and Nelson protégée Lily Meola.

Electric Lady Studios and Robot Fondue will host this year’s event at Nelson’s town of Luck, essentially a series of buildings and facades originally constructed for use during the filming of the outlaw country star’s 1986 film Red Headed Stranger. Many of the buildings were damaged in storms following the 2014 banquet, but have since been restored for this year’s show.

Tickets for the 2015 Heartbreaker Banquet are on sale now.
