NEW YORK (AP) — Willie Nelson is launching a new music festival in Pennsylvania this fall, where Neil Young and Sheryl Crow will take the stage.

Blackbird Presents announced the first Outlaw Music Festival on Tuesday. It will take place Sept. 18 at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton.

The event will feature performances from Nelson, Young and his band Promise of the Real, Lee Ann Womack, Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Brothers Osborne.

Tickets go on sale Friday. More performers will be announced at a later date.

Nelson, 83, is one of many musicians who have curated their own music festivals, from Jay Z to Mumford & Sons to Bon Iver.
