Tanya Tucker, Orville Peck, Los Lobos, the Black Opry featuring Fantastic Negrito and more are set to lead the upcoming 10-day Lucktoberfest music celebration, set for Oct. 28-Nov. 6 at Willie Nelson‘s Luck Ranch.

Luck Presents founder Matt Bizer said via a statement, “Lucktoberfest is a 10 day celebration of everything we love about Texas; from the music to the food and everything in between. Luck at its core is all about community, where everyone can come as they are. By collaborating with an amazing and diverse group of local and national curators, we are celebrating Texas by holding space for people to be themselves and share their incredible talents. Bring a little of yourself to Luck this year, and take a little bit of Luck with you on your way out!”
