About the Festival

You are here

LifeLight desires to optimize enjoyment and create a sense of community. The reason is simple, we want it all to be about Just Jesus.

The 2016 LifeLight Festival will have a new look this year. The three-day event set to be held September 2-4, 2016, will be simplified. The Festival kicks off Friday with great music and fun activities for everyone throughout the grounds. It will be a night of intimate settings for a variety of people.  We will celebrate different cultures, our youth, and our families.  The reason for the change is simple, “Just Jesus”.  LifeLight desires this year’s Festival to optimize the enjoyment opportunities for Festival attendees allowing them to fully partake in all the Festival has to offer.  

Along with a variety of music on our stages, Friday night bon fires will attract youth from all over the region for a combined school pep rally, free prizes, dance party and food.  Campers will enjoy an exclusive bon fire and activity area as well capping off the night with a guest artist.  Main Stage then lights up Saturday with your favorite headlining bands, including Lecrae, Michael W. Smith, RED, Hawk Nelson, and Tedashii (more announcements coming soon). 

About the Festival

The LifeLight Festival is more than music. It’s more than fun. It is about people and Jesus and building a relationship between God and man. And we do this through music, community, and fun!

Located on a farm just outside Worthing, SD, you’ll find more than corn and soybeans growing. LifeLight Festival is a place where you can grow too. Discover new music, meet new friends, encounter God. We are about the experience, and not just any experience, but connecting with Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you have been, we want you to join us for a weekend you’ll never forget!

Festival Funding

Nothing in life is free, right? So how do we keep an event of this magnitude free? With a festival budget of $1,200,000, we rely on sponsors, fundraisers, and people who are willing to pay it forward for others who are not able to in order to keep the festival free to the public.

The Festival is the largest and most well-known platform of our year-round, non-profit ministry, and it truly is a launching pad for the activities that happen the other 362 days of the year.

What are the ways you can give to support the Festival and ministry? You can donate any amount, any time by calling into our office or going online to give. If you are coming to the Festival, you can donate a free will gift for your festival pass.
