ZZ Top, Willie Nelson and More Set For Outlaw Fest at Bethel Woods
Outlaw Music Festival 2022 will feature ZZ Top and Willie Nelson among others this summer at Bethel Woods.
Starting back in the summer of 2016, Willie Nelson and Family have taken the Outlaw Music Festival across the country each summer, with a diverse lineup up of some of the biggest stars in folk, rock, country, and blues. The traveling festival returns this year with a show set to play Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on the Woodstock anniversary weekend in August. ZZ Top, who played one of the Top 5 Hudson Valley Rock Shows of 2021 last year at Bethel, returns this year as part of the Outlaw Fest lineup.
