DETROIT LAKES — The WE Fest country music festival has announced the full main stage lineup for its 40th anniversary show, which runs Aug. 3-5 at the Soo Pass Ranch south of Detroit Lakes.
Besides the previously announced headliners, Morgan Wallen, Brad Paisley and Kane Brown, the three-day event will also feature the Brothers Osborne, Gabby Barrett, Chase Rice, Travis Tritt, Blackberry Smoke, Ernest, Bailey Zimmerman, Neal McCoy, Jo Dee Messina, Ashland Craft, Ben Burgess and Ashley Cooke. Cowboy Troy will return as Main Stage host for a second straight year.
WE Fest was launched in 1983 and each year continues to build upon many of fans' favorite elements from the past, while continuing to enhance the festival grounds and adding fresh festival attractions. For the show's 40th anniversary, its Country Club venue is upping its game with a bigger "footprint," more private performances and surprise guests. Passes for the Country Club, which is located inside the main concert bowl, are currently available to purchase — but supplies are limited.
Camping packages are also available for staying on the grounds of the festival's spacious 400-acre home, the Soo Pass Ranch. Visit wefest.com for details.
