postheadericon Christian Music is Truly Great

Over the past fifty years, music genres have changed extensively resulting in an intensifying enormity of mainstream preference. Christian music has also had a massive growth, especially over the last ten years and some of our much loved favorites are becoming more and more popular within a mainstream audience.

Bands such as Relient K and Thousand Foot Krutch appeal to a substantial audience ranging from dedicated Christians, to non-believers.

One remarkable resource which has participated in the expansion of popularity of Christian music is Christian Music Festivals. These festivals feature many artists from all Christian genres such as rock, hard rock , hip hop, worship, and punk just to name a few.

Easterfest is the largest Christian music festival in Australia. It is held annually in Toowoomba, Queensland during Easter. Previous lineups have included artists such as Disciple, Hawk Nelson, Newsboys, Superchick, Jars of Clay, Thousand Foot Krutch, Newworldson, Rebecca St James and many more.

The festival has expanded throughout Toowoomba City creating Easterfest’s side event “Easterfest City” This brings the streets alive with buskers and events such as public Wii Competitions. Even shop owners get involved to celebrate the Easter story.

Easterfest has without doubt proven itself as a remarkable event that will continue to entertain for many years to come.
