Summer Festival

Bringing the best of contemporary Christian bands and artists from across the globe to Cornwall, Creation Fest 2019 was an all-star lineup. From rock, pop and funk to R ‘n’ B, folk and hip hop, there was something for everyone on our four live music stages.

 

Who was there?

Headliners Pat Barrett (Housefires), Worship Central, Lindy & the Circuit Riders, Guvna B and Wildwood Kin were joined by perennial festival favourites including LZ7, Philippa Hanna, Scott Cunningham, Josh Curnow and Bright City, as well as newcomers Josh Gauton, Lydia Evangeline and Justin Gambino. We’re busy booking bands for next year right now, so stay in touch via our newsletter and social media channels for all our latest 2020 announcements!

Pat Barrett
Writer of the RIAA certified Platinum “Good Good Father,” worship pastor, and one of the primary vocalists with Atlanta based worship collective Housefires, for Barrett, it seems there would be nothing new under the worship music sun. Except, perhaps, releasing a solo album, which is exactly what he’s about to do for the first time in his nearly 15-year career.
Barrett’s new album puts him on the cusp of something new. A new work, a new thing God is doing, and the future is not completely clear, but one thing is certain. When Barrett and his wife Meg had that initial conversation about a solo record, she made a prediction: “She said, ‘I think you’re going to feel things in a different way. It’s going to make you come alive,’” recalls Barrett. “She was completely right.”

Lindy & The Circuit Riders

To be driven by love requires faith, hope and perhaps most of all, surrender. This is certainly true for missionary and worship leader Lindy Conant-Cofer.

Beyond the Mountain
We’ve all had to face a mountain that seems impossible to overcome. When Matt experienced the loss of one of his closest friends, life crumbled away underfoot. When April found she’d lost control of anorexia, there seemed no hope she’d make it back to safety.
Through faith and small, mighty miracles, one step at a time, Matt emerged from grief and depression. God’s footprints were evident along the way. For April, the path to healing took an unexpected turn – someone moved the mountain.
Accomplished singer/songwriters in their own right, April and Matt met on a Christian songwriting retreat, where a common passion to share hope to those struggling soon emerged.
Today, they embark on project Beyond The Mountain.
With inspirational music and powerful testimonies, the pair of friends are a poignant reminder that whatever mountain we face; we are never alone, and there is always hope.
