Nelson, who held the festival outside of Austin last year (03), has opted to hold this year's (04) daylong event at the Fort Worth Stockyards, a 27 acre (10.9 hectare) concert field dubbed the North Forty.
Nelson says, "Fort Worth is one of my old hometowns. I've played all of the beer joints here."
Organisers expect approximately 25,000 people to attend.
Nelson's Fourth of July Picnic tradition began in Dripping Springs in 1973 and has since been moved to a host of towns around Texas.19/04/2004 09:30
