Willie Nelson's picnic with barbeque is the traditional way to celebrate the 4th of July. But if you come to Austin, you'll also see a large concert with legendary performers. America's beloved icon—Willie Nelson—created this annual event in 1972. Since then, every summer Willie Nelson along with some other big names in music get together to celebrate Independence Day with a festival. The concert features performances by more than 20 artists on two stages at the Circuit of The Americas racing track near Austin. The main stage is the Austin 360 Amphitheater, and the second stage is located in the Grand Plaza. The Grand Plaza has picnic tables where fans can eat, drink, celebrate, and watch their favoгrite artists. There you can also find a shopping area with a huge variety of Texas-based vendors. At the end of the celebration, everybody can observe a grand fireworks display.
