Some of my fondest memories with my family is packing everyone one of us in our mini-van and driving to a music festival. Being surrounded by other believers that have the same appreciation for art is always a great thing to do. It was a picture of the Church - or what it will be some day.
There always seemed to be something for our whole family to do. Whether it was checking out the artist's booths, various ministries that were present on the festival, catching a great speaker, listening to music or finding the rock climbing wall. We always had a blast.
One year, on the first day of the festival, a huge rainstorm came rolling in. It basically turned out to be a Christian "mud-fest." Nobody minded though. All of us were muddy and none of us cared.
I thought that I would offer a "play-list" of sorts to help you get ready for your journey to your nearest Christian music festival. Check out these artists today and prepare for some amazing, God-honoring shows when you see them this summer.
Check out the sounds of American Idol contestant, Colton Dixon.
Need some "pyro" in your show? One band comes to mind. Skillet.
