“Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic” in Camden will feature, from left, Nelson, Bob Dylan, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, Maren Morris and Mavis Staples. (A sixth artist on the bill, Celisse, is not shown.)

Willie Nelson, who previously announced an Outlaw Music Festival concert at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel on June 30, has added a Fourth of July concert at the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion in Camden that he is calling “Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic.” And it will have an amazing lineup: Joining Nelson will be Bob Dylan, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Maren Morris, Mavis Staples and Celisse.

Tickets go on sale March 29 at 10 a.m., with pre-sales starting March 26 at 10 a.m. Visit ticketmaster.com.

The show is scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m.

Nelson has presented 4th of July Picnic concerts since 1973, most but not all years, and mostly in his home state of Texas but occasionally in other states as well. This will be the first one in the Northeast.

The June 30 show in Holmdel will feature Nelson, Dylan, Plant and Krauss, and Celisse.
