Lifelight Celebrates 15 Years

August 31, 2012, 5:57 AM by Austin Hoffman

Lifelight Celebrates 15 Years
WORTHING, SD -

LifeLight 2012 kicks off Friday afternoon and looks back at the event's past 15 years.  This is the Christian music festival's third year at its new venue, which will be its home for years to come.

The event started in 1998 on only 2 acres of land. Now, they call a plot of 225 acres near Worthing, South Dakota, home.

Organizers have been building more permanent structures to make setting up in years to come easier. Volunteers from across the nation come to help set up stages, tents, and whatever needs to get done.

"So they are so relieved when they see us put something in. They're like, 'oh, that's done.  We don't have to take it down and put it back up next year,'" Lifelight Founder Alan Greene said.

One of the stages, the youth stage, is now a permanent fixture at the grounds.  And as time goes on, more of the festival will be there year round.

The free, four-day event includes seven stages with more than 100 bands including Skillet, Tenth Avenue North, and Peter Furler with Phil Joel.

Find out what's new at the festival this year on the LifeLight website.
