The Gorge Amphitheatre (LiveNation)
Dierks Bentley, Kix Brooks, Sara Evans, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Dwight Yoakam and other country stars are headed to the Gorge Amphitheatre for three days of music and camping this August.

From Friday, August 3 to Sunday, August 5 the Watershed Music Festival will take over the spectacular setting in George. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Live Nation Entertainment promises late night sets, impromptu jam sessions, collaborations and more. They are modeling the festival on their popular (and sold out) Sasquatch! Music Festival.

Artists confirmed include Dierks Bentley, Kix Brooks, Sara Evans, Brantley Gilbert, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, 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. A “Local’s Stage” (don’t blame me for the punctuation) will feature regional acts each night. More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Three day festival passes will start at $90. Find more information at WatershedFest.com.
