Minnesota Campgrounds Welcome C&W Fest
The Soo Pass Ranch on the shores of Lake Sallie in Minnesota will again be the host for the 27th annual WE Fest, America's premiere country music and camping festival Aug. 6-8.
This year's WE Fest will once again feature the top names in country music, with headliners such as Tim McGraw, Toby Keith and Brooks and Dunn, along with some of the brightest new stars on the country music horizon including Taylor Swift, Kellie Pickler, Craig Morgan and Trailer Choir, among others. Country music veterans Clint Black, Trace Adkins, Big and Rich with Cowboy Troy and Sawyer Brown will also return to the WE Fest stage in 2009.
Developed as an entertainment venue, the Soo Pass Ranch boasts a natural amphitheater that accommodates up to 50,000 people, including over 12,000 reserved seats. The ranch also contains 10 separate campgrounds on the shores of Lake Sallie, and in the meadows and wood surrounding the concert bowl. Last year 35,000 people camped at WE Fest, enjoying amenities ranging from hot water showers and permanent restroom facilities in the concert bowl and campgrounds, to curbside trash and recycling collection, and 24-hour medical and security services.
Completely sold out for the past five years, the WE Fest is once again expected to attract capacity crowds for three days of full production concerts, and four nights of camping at the Soo Pass Ranch.
