WE Fest promoters expect up to 46,000 people for this year's festival

WE Fest could be attracting quite a crowd at Soo Pass Ranch this year.

Chryll Sparks, vice president and national promotions director for WE Fest, told Forum reporter John Lamb that between 42,000 and 46,000 people are expected to attend the country music festival outside of Detroit Lakes this year.

For comparison, about 17,000 people attended the 10,000 Lakes Festival music festival, which was held at Soo Pass Ranch in July.

Sparks also said they're expecting 30,000 of the WE Fest attendees will be camping on the festival grounds.
