The LifeLight Christian Music Festival is in its ninth year and is annually held at the 160-acre festival grounds of Wild Water West in Sioux Falls, S.D. The six stages each bring a different genre of artists: mainstream, hard rock, coffeehouse, Southern Gospel, children’s and seminars. In addition to the music, this year’s festival will have an extreme skateboarding exhibition, countless food and merchandise vendors, camping and an all-city worship service on Sunday morning.
