DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — For just the second time in its 32-year history, WE Fest is under new ownership. Housed at the Soo Pass Ranch south of Detroit Lakes, the country music extravaganza has been sold to Connecticut-based Townsquare Media. The sale was announced earlier this week on the entertainment website www.tasteofcountry.com , which is owned by Townsquare. “It’s an amazing new chapter for WE Fest,” said John Gourley, the festival’s chief marketing officer.
