Saturday’s Main Stage headliner is Barlow Girl who has sold over one million albums, received 10 Dove nominations and claimed the longest No. 1 single at 13 weeks in Christian Radio Weekly chart history with the song, “I Need You To Love Me.”

On both nights, after the Main Stage closes there will be a couple bands in the shed for those hard rock fans.  Metal fans won’t want to miss A Plea for Purging Saturday night.

New to this year’s Bash will be a presentation with horses four times throughout the weekend with the Christian Corral.

There’ll be concessions available for purchase and other vendors.

Camping is available for those who don’t want to miss a thing. Many favorite bands from past years will be back along with some new up and coming groups.

More information on camping and the line-up of acts can be found at The festival is a non-profit family friendly event produced by Do Right Inc., and made possible by many sponsors and volunteers.
