Wheatley Vodka will be joining the 2023 Outlaw Music Festival tour as the official presenting sponsor of the entire tour. As part of its presenting sponsorship, Wheatley Vodka will be hosting pop-up experiences, giveaways, tastings, and more at select dates throughout the tour. 


“Wheatley Vodka is thrilled to be hitting the road with Outlaw Music Festival this year,” said David Binder, Willie and Wheatley fan and brand director at Sazerac. “Our vodka is made in the heartland of the USA in Frankfort, KY and is crafted to be the smoothest, most sippable vodka on the market. It’s the perfect spirit to enjoy when rocking out to music from all the talented artists on tour with Outlaw this summer.”

The inaugural Outlaw Music Festival debuted in 2016 in Scranton, PA. The sold-out show was so well received that Blackbird and Nelson have developed it into one of North America’s biggest annual touring franchises. Musicians such as Robert Plant, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, ZZ Top, Eric Church, Bonnie Raitt, Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Sheryl Crow, Sturgill Simpson, The Avett Brothers and many more have been a part of the Outlaw Tour, sharing unforgettable music memories and unique vendor villages with local food, drinks and shopping in Live Nation amphitheaters across the country.
