The drive to Stoney Nakota Nation was like a snapshot out of an old Western landscape: A hidden valley, separated by a river lined with tall pines. Having been to this site 3 weeks’ prior for the launch party, to see the transformation to this Festival playground was breathtaking.
Was reading that this is the largest faith-based music festival, cool. 18 musical acts including King & Country, Building 429 & Jamie Grace were there. Lucky me, had a chance to go backstage to see the headliner, Reba McEntire: special!
Unity & Community were two common themes throughout the 2-day festival, now in its 2nd year. This Family Friendly, no-alcohol-allowed event, sectioned off areas for food, merchandise, kids, and of course, music on the main stage. This was by far an escape from reality. From ‘Mother Nature’s Movie Set’ as a backdrop, Mother Nature also took care of the picture-perfect weather which added to the theme of community coming together. Billed as a faith-based event, there was something for everyone. From the moment you arrived to the last note on the main-stage you realize that this is a date to add in your calendar for next year.
