Heaven Fest 2010 will feature the reunion on of Petra and the Supertones, and that is just one of the highlights of the July 31 Christian rock festival.
Mary Mary, a Grammy Award winner this month, and multiple Dove Award winners, Casting Crowns, are two of the big names that will play on the main stages at the festival, which features seven stages for a whole day of a wide-variety of music.
Also secured for the summer event are Hawk Nelson, who are always a big hit with the young teen set; Thousand Foot Krutch, which is fronted by Trevor McNevan; BarlowGirl, a rockin’ sister band; Grammy nominee Sanctus Real; Phil Wickman, who played Heaven Fest 2009; rappers Group 1 Crew; heavy metal favorites Decyfer Down and Disciple; Flame and White Collar Sideshow — two new bands for me. I’ll have to check out their music.
Keep an eye out on this website around St. Patrick’s Day — when Round 2 of the 2010 lineup is due out. Also this year’s festival will feature a new stage — Metal/Hardcore.
