Tunes with views: Watershed is a country music concert that everyone goes to have fun and hang out with friends, for a whole weekend of fun. Everyone was there listening to music and hanging with their friends having a good time listening to all of the country music and their favorite artists. “My favorite people who are singing are Morgan Wallen, Miranda Lambert, and Kane Brown,” senior Molly Denton said.

Tickets are on sale now! Watershed is happening again after its closure in 2020 due to the coronavirus, and people are excited to go back.

Watershed takes place in the Gorge at George City, Washington, and has an open-air venue with food trucks, a ferris wheel, and camping sites available for rent.

Watershed is a concert for country music-loving people. Audience members get to listen to country music all weekend alongside country-loving friends. The upcoming list of singers includes popular artists, and people seem to be excited for a few special ones.

”Me and my brother are like super big Morgan Wallen fans,” senior Sylas Playto said.
Miranda Lambert and Kane Brown will also be performing. So the place will be packed with big-time celebrity singers for all age groups to enjoy, not just the younger crowd. Some people say it’s not all that inclusive due to the amount of non-school-appropriate activities.

“Everyone out there is camping and listening to music from the time you get up to the time you go to bed,” Playto said.

You are getting the experience of being with everyone for the entire weekend and having a great crowd of people around you.

“Everyone there is very friendly and welcoming,’’ senior Molly Denton said.

Denton goes with her whole family, and her parents enjoy going and listening to music. There is a wide variety of things that you can do while you are there, and it is a place where you can just go and have fun. You can do things like ride the ferris wheel, listen to music, dance, hang out with friends and eat some good food.

“It’s a great place to feel nature and just enjoy good music with some really good people,” freshman Devyn Zurel said.

Watershed will take place on July 29, 30, and 31, and tickets are still on sale. If country music is your jam, check out this concert at the Gorge.
