In August, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Sara Evans and plenty more will headline the first Watershed Music Festival to be held in George, Wash., just east of Seattle. The show, presented by Live Nation, is set for Aug. 3-5, and will give fans the full experience, with music, camping, late night sets, impromptu jam sessions, collaborations and more.

“The Gorge provides a feeling that is impossible to recreate anywhere else,” says the show’s co-promoter, and ACM Promoter of the Year, Brian O’Connell. “It is truly a magical place and provides the perfect setting for a cool, eclectic country event. We wanted to create something that didn’t exist, from the caliber of artists to the camping and the atmosphere. I’m excited to be a part of it and see it all come together.”

“In the storied 25 year history of the Gorge, we’ve been fortunate to host many of the nation’s top country artists, but all have been single day concerts,” adds Jeff Trisler, President of Live Nation Seattle. “For years, we’ve wanted to host a multiple day country festival that builds on the tremendous success for our annual Sasquatch Music Festival and Dave Matthews Band residency. We believe this event will bring that same sort of excitement and energy to the Gorge for an entirely new group of music fans.”

Other confirmed artists scheduled to perform at the festival include Kix Brooks, Brantley Gilbert, Thompson Square, Uncle Kracker, Dwight Yoakam, Tracy Lawrence, Reckless Kelly, the Lost Trailers, Steve Holy, Johnny Reid, Jon Pardi, Thomas Rhett, Morgan Frazier and DeeJay Silver. The grounds will also have a local stage that will feature regional acts each night. More artists are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

Three-day festival passes start at only $90 and go on sale Sat., May 5 at Ticketmaster and Live Nation. For more information on the festival, visit its official website by clicking here. or follow them on Twitter.
