Wednesday, December 13, 2017
RiseFest is pleased to announce the next artist on the 2018 bill, Grammy-winning Australian duo, For King and Country.
“Each announcement that we get to make for RiseFest is exciting, and this one is no different! It’s an artist my wife has asked me to get for years now, and it just never worked out.” Says President and Founder of RISE Ministries, Rob Roozeboom. “However, this year is different and we couldn’t be more excited to add For King & Country to the festival line-up! If you’ve never experienced them before, you’re in for an awesome night. They’re fun, energetic and have a heart for Jesus that radiates from stage. We can’t wait to have them join us at RiseFest 2018!”
Soaring melodies, driving rhythms, theatrical instrumentation and personal themes are the heartbeat of for KING & COUNTRY.
