Local News Outlets share praise for the festival
Last week thousands of Christian music fans attended Kingdom Bound – one of the longest running Christian music festivals in the country and the largest in New York state. Featuring over 50 artists including GRAMMY-Winners TobyMac, for King & Country, and Casting Crowns, and located at Darien Lake Amusement and Water Park, the event featured something for everyone and drew the largest crowds seen at the festival in well over a half a decade.
In addition to drawing record crowds, the festival was also praised by the local media for the scope and quality of the festival:
The Buffalo News wrote in reference to for King & Country’s performance “…The Smallbone brothers transformed the song into a rock spectacular, leaving it all on the stage as they closed out the best performance of Kingdom Bound in recent memory.”
Buffalo’s WIVB News 4 also shared about the festival saying “ Darien Lake is drawing more than just rollercoaster enthusiasts this week as tens of thousands have visited the Kingdom Bound Music and Arts Festival…”
In addition to the four days of music and arts, the festival also gave back to the community through it’s partnership with national nonprofit 8 Days of Hope. Kingdom Bound attendees and 8 Days of Hope volunteers worked together to paint and restore multiple homes in the community free of charge to the occupants.
During the festival, Kingdom Bound announced its three primary headliners for the 2019 festival (July 28-31) Sharing that GRAMMY-Winners for King & Country are set to return for 2019 and will be joined by rock favorites Skillet and GRAMMY-nominated fan favorite Crowder with rocker LEDGER and international speaker Reggie Dabbs also announced.
