The Watershed Music and Camping festival has announced that the 2016 festivities will take place over two consecutive weekends. The country festival will take place July 29-31 and Aug. 5-7 at The Gorge in George, Washington. Both weekends will feature the same lineup of soon-to-be announced headliners.
“Watershed was the very first festival we launched four years ago,” said Brian O’Connell, President of Live Nation Country Touring. “Thinking back to when we started we had no idea how quickly it would take off. The fans who we now know as ’Shedders have become very important to us on this journey. We’ve been listening to their feedback and adding a second weekend seemed like the next logical move. It’s hard to describe the unique vibe you feel at Watershed, it’s such a special and awe-inspiring event and now more people will have the opportunity to see what it’s all about.”
Watershed received a nomination for “Festival of the Year” by the Academy of Country Music and has been named a “must-see” summer festival by Country Weekly, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone.
