NASHVILLE, TN – Feb. 29, 2016 – Established only five short years ago, Watershed Music And Camping Festival has received a nomination for ACM “Festival Of The Year” for the second year in a row. It was recently announced that Watershed would be the first-ever country music festival to host two consecutive weekends and the first weekend has already sold-out in advance. Superstars Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Keith Urban are slated to headline the festival both weekends (July 29-31 and Aug. 5-7) as well as Brett Eldredge, Merle Haggard, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, David Nail, RaeLynn and more set to join the eclectic lineup.
Heralded by Country Weekly, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone as a “must-see” summer festival and juxtaposed against the world’s most stunning and ethereal backdrop of the Columbia River, Watershed takes place at The Gorge, WA which has also been dubbed by many who have visited as “Heaven’s Amphitheater.” A truly magical setting, fans (otherwise known as ‘Shedders) return each year in their thousands to experience the unique vibe of Watershed including the many fringe activities on offer such as themed campsites, spirited late-night sets and amusement rides with jaw-dropping views of the festival site.

“What we have built with Watershed in just a few short years is mind-blowing to me and to be nominated for an ACM for a second year in a row is beyond humbling” said Brian O’Connell, President of Live Nation Country Touring. “Our ’Shedders caught on pretty quickly with Watershed that this was something special, and their unwavering passion led to us making a big step this year hosting two weekends in a row. It’s exciting that even more people will be able to see what we’ve created way out there in the most amazing setting in the world!”
