The 2024 Outlaw Music Festival, featuring some of music's biggest acts, will hit Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater this summer.

The festival bill on June 29 features Willie Nelson & Family, Bob Dylan, the duo of Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, and Celisse. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m. via OutlawMusicFestival.com.

“I am thrilled to get back on the road again with my family and friends playing the music we love for the fans we love,” Nelson, 90, said in a statement. He along with Dylan, 82, and former Led Zeppelin lead singer Plant, 75, each have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Nelson just last year. The “On the Road Again” singer-songwriter, whose hits reach back to penning Patsy Cline’s classic “Crazy” (1961), also has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Other accolades for the star-studded ensemble include Dylan’s 2016 Nobel Prize in literature, 2012 Presidential Medal of Freedom and 2009 National Medal of Arts; Plant’s and Led Zeppelin’s 2012 Kennedy Center Honor; and Krauss' 27 Grammy Awards.

Plant and Krauss, 52, are longtime collaborators who tour together and released the Grammy-winning, platinum album “Raising Sand” in 2007. They teamed again for “Raise the Roof” in 2021. Celisse, born Celisse Henderson, 39, is a veteran of Broadway as part of the ensemble cast of the "Godspell" revival (2011-12), Off-Broadway productions and the national touring company for "Wicked." She has opened for numerous artists and was part of Joni Mitchell’s invitation-only “Joni Jams” performance.

The Outlaw Music Festival debuted in 2016 in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and has since become an annual touring franchise. Participating musicians have included, in addition to this year’s troupe, The Avett Brothers, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Sheryl Crow, Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Neil Young and ZZ Top. The 2024 tour commences June 21 in Alpharetta, Georgia, and closes Sept. 17 in Buffalo, New York.
