With superstar headliners like Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Keith Urban in attendance, Watershed Festival has become one of the the country’s must-see festivals.
Established only five years ago, Watershed takes place at The Gorge, Wash., with some of the world’s most stunning backdrops of the Columbia River and is the first-ever festival to host shows on back-to-back weekends. Kicking off weekend one (July 29-31) were headliners Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Keith Urban—all of whom will also play the second weekend—A Thousand Horses, Tyler Farr, Justin Moore, RaeLynn, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and many more.
Nash Country Daily enlisted the help of newcomer Bailey Bryan to be our special correspondent at the Watershed Festival, where she performed on the Next From Nashville side stage. Bailey, recently signed to 300 Entertainment/Warner Music Nashville, has released her debut single, “Own It,” available on YouTube. The 18-year-old calls Sequim, Wash., home, so Watershed was just a short drive away.
If you were not able to attend the first weekend, there is still time to pack up your stuff and join the fun. The two-weekend festival has many activities to offer such as themed campsites, late-night sets and amusement rides with stunning views of the festival grounds. The lineup for weekend two (Aug. 5-7) will see—in addition to Keith, Eric and Jason—Brett Eldredge, Chris Janson, Kacey Musgraves, David Nail, Jon Pardi, Maren Morris, Travis Tritt and more.
