DETROIT LAKES. Minn. — WE Fest announced its headliners for next summer’s festival.

Morgan Wallen, Brad Paisley and Kane Brown will each cap off a night.

The biggest regional country and camping festival will be held Aug. 3, 4 and 5 at Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minn.

Also announced was the duo Brothers Osborne, who played Moorhead’s Bluestem Amphitheater in June.

The bill will be the first WE Fest headlining sets for Wallen and Brown, the latter returning for the first time since his 2017 debut. It will be Wallen’s first show there, though in March he packed 19,500 people into the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, the third biggest show there.


Tickets for next year’s WE Fest go on sale at 7 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 29 at .
