Shedders! Are you dreaming of warm, sunny weather filled with friends, camping, a few adult beverages and kickin' country music with the most beautiful concert backdrop in our state?

He's what we know so far about the 2017 Watershed Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre ...

The most obvious change this year is that the festival will be only one weekend: July 28-30.

Artist announcement and tickets sale information are expected in February, probably a week to a week and a half apart. The artist lineup will be announced first, with ticket dales to follow.

There could be a campsite decorating contest with a possible theme.

So keep your eyes on the Watershed web page and Facebook page. Both are great resources where you can chat with experienced Shedders who know the ins and outs.
