Watershed Festival 2013 Grabs Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Luke Bryan
The Watershed Festival will once again be bringing country music to the Pacific Northwest, this time featuring Brad Paisley, Toby Keith and Luke Bryan.
The festival is held at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash., the same venue that hosts the popular Sasquatch Festival. This year’s Watershed event will be held August 2-4.
Other notable artists performing this year include Lee Brice, Kip Moore, Terri Clark, Chris Young and Thompson Square. Additionally, Shooter Jennings and Blackberry Smoke will play late night sets known as the “World Famous Late Night Honky Tonk.”
“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, President of Live Nation, Nashville, in a statement “We were blown away by the fans and the support from the artists. We have some new surprises planned for this year and hope to keep making it bigger and better year after year.”
It appears the festival wants to keep ticketing for the event simple – here’s how the official website describes its ticket policy:
ALL 3-Day Festival passes are priced at $149 INCLUSIVE of all taxes and Ticketmaster fees.
One price, NO additional fees. This will be the price from the moment tickets go on sale until either the shows play or Watershed is sold out.
Additionally, no single-day passes will be sold. However, it should be noted that while those prices include all fees, they do not include camping, which starts at $110. Campgrounds include hot showers, portable bathrooms and a convenience store.
Kip Moore told USA Today that the Watershed Festival will be the first camping festival he’s played, and that he’s looking forward to it.
“There’s a different level of excitement at those kinds of things,” he said. “The way I am, in a place like this, I’m liable to get out there before the show and mix with the fans, play a little corn hole and hang with them. I’ve done that before, at one-day festivals, and I look forward to that.”
