Three Day Country Music and Camping Festival Returns to The Gorge
Watershed Music and Camping Festival is set to return to The Gorge July 31- August 2 for the fourth year, with country music megastars Dierks Bentley, Florida-Georgia Line and Carrie Underwood leading the lineup. With a history of selling out within minutes, passes for the three-day music and camping festival go on sale March 3 at 10 a.m. PST at watershedfest.com.
Gary Allan, Frankie Ballard, Mark Chesnutt, Easton Corbin, Clare Dunn, Hunter Hayes, Sam Hunt, Jana Kramer, Joe Nichols, Parmalee, Michael Ray, Thomas Rhett, and Chris Young will also play the festival with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
Watershed will also join in on their festival family’s tradition, with their second stage becoming a “Next From Nashville” stage, known for showcasing emerging country acts. This stage will also host Watershed’s “Late Night” set, a fan favorite and festival highlight, which will return with Sam Hunt playing the special Friday night slot in addition to his main stage appearance.
Set in the picturesque Gorge Amphitheatre, the festival has become a summer staple with fans, (dubbed “‘Shedders”) returning year after year.
“Watershed is so special to me personally, and I feel that the ‘Shedders’ are part of a huge extended family,” said Brian O’Connell President of Live Nation Country Touring. “We try as hard as we can to continue to improve on one of the greatest experiences I have had the privilege to be involved with in my career, and this year will be no different. 2015’s lineup is loaded, and I am particularly excited to have Dierks back this year since he was there with us at the very first Watershed. It’ll be fun to show him around again and see how far we’ve come. I cannot wait until July 31!”
