WE Fest 2015 Kicks Off in Minnesota
WE Fest 2015 gets started on Thursday (Aug. 6) in Detroit Lakes, Minn., boasting one of the biggest all-star lineups of any country music festival in the United States.
Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton are all slated to headline this year's WE Fest, which runs Aug. 6-8 at scenic Soo Pass Ranch. Established in 1983, the event has steadily grown into one of the leading country music festivals in the country, twice being nominated for the Country Music Association’s prestigious Best Special Event award.
Maiden Dixie will kick things off on the main stage this year at 2:45PM Thursday, followed by sets from Logan Mize, Big & Rich, Hank Williams, Jr. and the Flatts. Mize will also entertain on the Late Night Barn Stage after midnight.
Texas stars Randy Rogers Band will jump start the lineup on Friday (Aug. 7), followed by Eric Paslay, Tyler Farr and Dierks Bentley. Lambert will headline the festival's second night beginning at 10:45PM, followed by RRB on the Late Night Barn Stage.
The event wraps up on Saturday (Aug. 8) with the Swon Brothers, Colt Ford, Eli Young Band, Jake Owen and Shelton. By the time Ford takes the Late Night Barn Stage for the final performance of WE Fest 2015, fans who traveled from all over the country will have seen one of the most impressive three-day lineups in contemporary country music, all in one place.
Next year's WE Fest dates have already been announced — it will run from Aug. 4-6, 2016. Tickets are currently on sale.
