The festival’s fans (otherwise known as ‘Shedders) have also been instrumental, embracing the full experience of “Watershed” with homemade campground activities including giant slip n’ slides, monster beer pong competitions, dunk tanks, and themed campsites. Fans can enhance this year’s festivities with the introduction of the Watershed VIP Club, offering priority access to enter the festival, amusement rides, and the scenic onsite cliffhouse, as well as exclusive entry to the elevated Sunset Deck, offering unrivaled views of the stage and surroundings. Campers can also indulge by upgrading camping to The Gorge Oasis.
“I always tell anyone who asks about Watershed, ‘you have to see it to believe it,’ and it’s true,” said Brian O’Connell, President of Country Touring at Live Nation. “What happens out there in the middle of nowhere is honestly like no other experience. The views, the fans, the artists, the vibes, it really does all feel like magic, and thanks to the ‘Shedders, we’re in an awesome groove. They know they can count on us to bring the talent, showcased by our lineup announcement, and we know we can count on them to bring their spirits that have grown this festival into something really special.”
