The Watershed Music Festival will return to the Gorge Amphitheatre in Quincy, Wash., on Aug. 2-4 for a second year, with Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Lee Brice, Terri Clark, Kip Moore, Thompson Square and Chris Young, among others, in tow.
The festival also will feature late-night sets by Shooter Jennings and Blackberry Smoke at the "World Famous Late Night Honky Tonk," according to a March 8 report from PR reps.
"This time last year as we were getting ready to announce the first year of this festival, we knew we had a great location and a unique concept for country fans, but we didn't know how amazing the weekend would turn out to be," said Brian O'Connell, five-time ACM Promoter of the Year and president of Live Nation, Nashville.
"We were blown away by the fans and the support from the artists," he continued. "We have some new surprises planned for this year and hope to keep making it bigger and better year after year."
The Watershed Music Festival will feature a versatile lineup of artists, late-night sets, camping sites, collaborations and more. The Gorge Amphitheatre is described as one of the most-scenic concert venues in the world and offers sweeping views of the Columbia River Gorge. The area itself is a watershed for the Columbia River; thus, inspiring the name of the event.
