Asbury-Sponsored Festival Brings Big Names to Wilmore
River Rock Kentucky makes its debut Sept. 15-16
WILMORE, Ky. — In just weeks, some of the best-known artists in Christian music will come to Wilmore during River Rock Kentucky, a new Christian music festival co-sponsored by Asbury University (Sept. 15-16).
Asbury has a long tradition of involvement in Christian music. That tradition continues with River Rock, as Jeremy Camp, the Newsboys, Danny Gokey, Hawk Neslon and many more artists join in a two-day festival of praise hosted at Servant Heart Farm (formerly the Ichthus Farm) in Wilmore. Buy tickets now!
“It’s going to be a great time,” said Gokey in a video inviting Christian music fans to gather in Wilmore. “It’s a time to escape, a time to worship, a time to just bow down and bask in what God is doing.”
Jeremy Camp is one of many artists who will perform at River Rock Kentucky (Sept. 15-16).
Gokey, who launched his music career after earning third-place finalist on American Idol, is just one of an impressive lineup of artists who will perform at River Rock. Spanning a range of styles and influences, artists all share one goal — to offer their music as a gift of worship.
“It’s key to find the right combination of artists, worship leaders and behind-the-scenes people with true hearts for the Lord,” said Rory Comtois, a worship arts pastor in Nicholasville, Ky., who was instrumental in the festival’s creation. “I’m excited to see River Rock go from a small dream to a reality to an even bigger dream — all because of a small faith step.”
River Rock is only weeks away — buy tickets online to save money at the gate! Organizers are also welcoming volunteers to help with the festival. Volunteer 8-10 hours throughout Thursday, Friday and Saturday for free entry to the festival. Need a place to stay? Check out our list of local lodging options.
