This just in! WE Fest has been canceled for 2020. The festival is under new management as it was bought by Live Nation earlier this year. In a Facebook post, the company says that it will be using this year to plan for "an even bigger and better festival" in 2021.

This weekend-long country festival has been going on for 37 years at Soo Pass Ranch near Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. It was so much fun when I went this past summer and look forward to attending it again in 2021.


The sale of WE Fest, announced on Aug 6, 2019 by the festival's previous owner Townsquare Media, was reportedly valued at $10 million and also included several other events.

Note: This station is owned by Townsquare Media
