For the past 37 years, AgapeFest has been a two-day event held in May in Greenville, Illinois. 2014 will see a new location and a slimmer, pared down one-day event. Next year, on April 26, 2014, the festival will open at it's new home - Family Arena in St. Charles, Missouri.
Though organizers had an excellent relationshiop with the Bond County Fairgrounds, the need for a facility that won't be effected by weather became a necessary thing after dealing with inclimate weather in previous years.
Fans can still expect a variety of Christian music on multiple stages, and they can now experience all of AgapeFest in one day, which reduces costs for both the festival and the fans who attend.
Over the past few years, AgapeFest has featured bands like Audio Adrenaline, David Crowder Band, Lecrae, Needtobreathe, Owl City, Switchfoot, Tenth Avenue North, Third Day, and tobyMac. The line-up for 2014 has yet to be announced, but if history is any indication, the artists appearing will be fan favorites.
