In May of 2013, Creation Festivals stepped in to revitalize the much-loved Ichthus Festival and has brought the Ichthus Festival into a larger family of festivals that includes Creation Northeast, Creation Northwest and Sonshine Festival. All of these events share similar vision, passion and mission to impact our current generation with a life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
The nation’s longest-running Christian Festival relaunches in July 2015 at a new location — the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., under its new name…Creation-Ichthus Festival! — but one thing that hasn’t changed is the involvement of Asbury University.
Asbury has been involved in various ways with the music festival since its beginning more than 40 years ago and is happy to partner with Creation to continue touching lives in positive ways through the event.
In fact, the Creation-Ichthus Music Festival just wouldn’t be the same without Asbury University students and alumni, as AU Media Communication students help produce the program, run cameras during performances and provide the professional quality video projected on the screens.
Asburians are often backstage helping artists, and many of our students and alumni work behind the scenes to help with technical equipment and logistics. They even broadcast the event from the state-of-the-art HD trailer.
If you are interested in this type of hand’s-on experience, just stop by the Asbury tent and we'll give you more information about the amazing Media Communication’s program. If you’re a high school student, you might even want to attend the ImpactU Summer Film Camps that are held in the $12.6-million, state-of-the-art Center for Communication Arts at Asbury: asbury.edu/impactU
