Hank Williams Jr. and Willie Nelson & Family will be among headliners at a new music festival at the site where the Rocklahoma music festival is held annually.

The Born & Raised Music Festival is billed as a new “outlaw, Texas and red dirt country music camping experience” and will take place at Pryor Creek Music Festival Grounds north of Pryor. The inaugural Born & Raised Music Festival will be Saturday, June 6, and Sunday, June 7, with a prefestival party Friday, June 5. It will take place two weeks after Rocklahoma, which is scheduled for May 22-24.

Announced by AEG Presents, which also produces Rocklahoma, the Born & Raised Music Festival will feature more than 25 acts, including Jamey Johnson, Whiskey Myers, Blackberry Smoke, Margo Price, the Randy Rogers Band, Shooter Jennings and Parker McCollum.

“Born & Raised Music Festival came to life with an idea to celebrate Outlaw, Texas, and red dirt country music. To us, there is no better place to have it than deep in the heart of Oklahoma, the birthplace of red dirt,” festival producer Mike DuCharme of AEG Presents said in a news release.

“These genres are showing a resurgence right now on the music scene. People want to celebrate their roots and listen to music that reminds them where they were born and raised.

“When looking to kick off year one of this event we could think of nobody better than Willie Nelson and Hank Williams Jr. to headline each day.”

Presale passes will be available beginning Wednesday, Feb. 12, with early bird prices on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 14.

Weekend general admission passes start at $89.50, with reserved seating starting at $159.50.
