Photos: Watershed @ The Gorge Amphitheatre – Day 1

Watershed – the 3-day country music festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre – is so popular that it’s been extended to two weekends. The outdoor venue seats over 27,000 and is located above the Columbia River. It is consistently rated one of the most beautiful venues in the country. About 12 artists performed each day, split between the Main and Next From Nashville stages. The audience consisted of mainly 20-somethings, with bikinis and cowboy boots as the typical female attire. The first day was the hottest at 102F, but cooled off the next two days. The photos below are in reverse chronological order – from the headliners in the evening on each stage, to the openers in the early afternoon.
