Organizers Say Some 300,000 Attended LifeLight
WORTHING, S.D. (AP) - Organizers of the LifeLight Music Festival say about 300,000 Christian music fans attended this past weekend's multi-stage event.
Festival Director Julie Klinger tells KELO television that the estimates are from traffic patterns and counts from event engineers. Organizers don't yet have an official count.
The three-day event, which is billed as the nation's largest Christian rock festival, featured seven stages of music and more than 100 bands.
Klinger says the band Skillet brought nearly 100,000 people to just one stage Saturday night. She says it was the biggest standing crowd during the festival's 15-year history.
