NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and other country stars have signed up for the inaugural Watershed Music Festival outside Seattle.

The new three-day festival will be held Aug. 3-5 at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash.

A news release announcing the festival says tickets go on sale May 5 and are limited to 25,000. Fans will be able to camp out and late-night sets are scheduled.

The Watershed joins a growing number of multi-day country music festivals around the nation and is the first at the venue, which hosts the annual Sasquatch Music Festival.

Other stars scheduled to perform include Kix Brooks, Sara Evans, Dwight Yoakam, Uncle Kracker, Brantley Gilbert and Thompson Square. More performers will be announced at a later date.
