We are so excited to announce the artists playing at Christfest 2019!
Building Nations is a band hailing from the heartlands of America, Bedford, Indiana. The group was officially formed in mid 2011 by two brothers, David VanLandingham (Lead Vocals) and Randy VanLandingham (Lead Vocals, Guitar & Keys). They are joined by their mother Karen “Mama V” VanLandingham (Bass), their uncle Dave Higgins (Guitar, Vocals), Isaac Hawkins (Guitar), and Kevin Corra (Drums). Building Nations mission is simply reaching the world for Jesus through the gifts and talents that they have been blessed to receive.
After a time of spiritual growth, God called me to continue rapping but showed me a new avenue for the talent He has given me. The focus of my music now is to honor God most of all with the lyrics and reflect the light of CHRIST through my ministry and testimony.
My goal is to reach people where they are through a means with which they can connect (music, specifically Hip Hop) to speak my testimony, real truths, and God’s Word into them. Satan and the world are screaming lies into people. I want to scream truth louder.
The Young Escape
Hailing from Southern California, The Young Escape (Capitol) deliver a fresh shot of EDM-infused Indie pop and the energetic live show to match. Comprised of siblings Ryan, McKenna, Kyrsten, and Luke Johns, the band’s debut singles Good Life and Neverfade are an alchemy of modern pop sheen and sophisticated edge, carried to otherworldly heights by McKenna’s vocal. With an average age of 18, TYE speak to the themes of insecurity, anxiety, and pressure facing every kid in the modern age with the hope and escape found in the kinetic spirit of youth at any age.
