Kingdom Come Festival in Greentown, IN, celebrated its 10th anniversary in June, with 2 days full of Christian music–29 bands/artists in all–on one stage!
This festival is run on donations so that festival parking, admission, and on-site camping can be free. It is such a blessing not only to those in IN, but to people across the US, who travel hundreds of miles to attend KCF each year. The festival features primarily Christian rock bands, but also brings in a couple artists of other genres, such as rap and contemporary Christian.
This was my first year attending KCF, and I was most excited to see Forsaken Hero perform live and meet frontman Casey Price. Forsaken Hero released their EP Anthem on June 1, and I tracked piano for two of the songs– “Masterpiece”, which also features Tate Olsen (touring cellist for Skillet), and “From Now On,” a cover from the hit movie The Greatest Showman. The band enthusiastically performed songs off the EP at the festival, opening up day 2 for The Protest and Fireflight. Casey Price said he is thankful that they were invited to play at KCF, and called it “a surreal experience…a dream come true!”
What makes KCF unique– aside from it being a totally free event– is that it is held in a veteran’s memorial park. Throughout the event you can see attendees and band members taking time to pray for, honor, and thank those who have served our country. KCF provides a great time for community and fellowship, and the message throughout the event is clear: you are loved. You matter.
