GEORGE, Washington (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — While Live Nation's new country festival Faster Horses has been drawing a lot of the buzz this year, Brian O'Connell is also bringing back the Watershed Music Festival for the second year.
Set for August 2nd through August 4th at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington, the country music fest has a lineup that features Luke Bryan, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Lee Brice, Terri Clark, Kip Moore, Thompson Square, Chris Young as well as late night sets at the "World Famous Late Night Honky Tonk" by Shooter Jennings and Blackberry Smoke.
Last year saw the successful inaugural edition of the Watershed festival, which drew an estimated 20,000 fans per day to the venue.
"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, five-time ACM Promoter of the Year and President of Live Nation, Nashville. "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." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
