Set Up For LifeLight Is Underway

Bookmark and Share

On Saturday morning dozens of volunteers were busy battling the rain while setting up for LifeLight 2013. In less than a week more than 100,000 people are expected to go out and enjoy the music in Worthing.

“We are just a few days away from the largest Christian family music festival,” said Alan Green, Co-Founder of LifeLight.

Green said in less than a week, volunteers will have the 225 acres of land the 16th Annual LifeLight will take place on, ready for music lovers.

“We've got more than 100,000 people that will be out here. So we are really building a city here,” said Green. “There's electrical that is going in today for the campground and for the vendors. And then there's staging and also prep for the kitchens.”

Saturday's biggest project was putting up stage one of eight. And it wasn’t easy, as the South Dakota wind turned the canvas top of the stage into a sail.

“What we have going on behind us is that we are praying the wind stops,” said Green.

Volunteers had already battled the rain while climbing across it to set up the pull ropes.
Come Wednesday, another field will have an over 500 square foot main stage on it. And on that stage there will be bands that will draw crowds of over 100,000 people.

For now, the field has its more permanent structures marking the spot where the stage will be.
Across the street as other structures are built, Green said they are ready for another year. And he is hoping it will be even bigger than the last year's.

“We were just reading in Acts it said nearly the whole city came out to hear the good news, to hear the word of God,” said Green. “So that's what we are praying for. That's it's the whole city and beyond.”

The three day festival costs around $1.5 million dollars to put on. Like in years past, the festival is free of charge for those who wish to attend.

Lifelight begins Aug. 30 and runs through Sept. 1. For more information on the festival, check out LifeLight’s website .
