While music festivals can be a super fun way to catch several of your favorite acts in one epic day (or often, weekend), it may be harder to find a festival that matches up with all of your tastes and values. That’s why we’re so excited to share the Spirit West Coast festival with you!
The annual Christian music fest is headed to Monterey, California on August 1-3, and they’ve got an awesome lineup in store for anyone who can make it out for the weekend.
For those unfamiliar with the fest, we’ll let their website explain what it’s all about:
The Spirit West Coast festival is the largest and only multiple-day Christian music festival in the southwestern United States. The festival ranks as one of the premier Christian music festivals in the country, drawing fans from many states…Spirit West Coast features concerts by many of the top artists in the encouraging genre of Christian music.
