WE Fest

WE Fest has become one of the leading country music festivals in North America since its inception more than 30 years ago. The country music and camping festival takes place annually in Detroit Lakes, Minn., at Soo Pass Ranch, which features a natural amphitheater that can hold up to 50,000 fans. The property also includes 10 campgrounds that can accommodate up to 35,000 campers, making it an ideal setting for one of the most popular destination festivals in country. WE Fest has been nominated twice for the CMA’s prestigious Best Special Event award, and 2015’s all-star lineup included headliners Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. The 2016 lineup is the biggest in the history of WE Fest, including Kid Rock, Eric Church, Tim McGraw and Steven Tyler, as well as a diverse daily lineup of the biggest names and brightest up-and-coming acts in country music today.
