"Our goal with the 2020 Picnic is to bring it back to what it was-in the only way we can during these times. We were set to host this year's event at Luck, to welcome the Picnic back to its hill country home," Ellee Fletcher Durniak, co-founder of Luck Productions, said. "The Picnic is really one of a kind, it has always been scrappy. Cars on fire. Mass arrests. You name it...it happened at the Picnic."
