GILFORD, NH— New Sound Concerts celebrates the 24th annual SoulFest featuring multiple Grammy-award-winning Christian artists for its final year at Gunstock Mountain Resort before announcing a big move. SoulFest, which was started in 1998, has been at Gunstock Mountain since 2004. Already a momentous occasion with saying farewell to a multi-year host site, preparation has become more dynamic with the recent resignation of 7 of GMR’s senior managers, all of which put in their 2 weeks notice during a Gunstock Area Commission meeting exactly two weeks before the festival’s start date. Nonetheless, GMR’s middle-management, after a day of meetings to reorganize and plan, have announced that the upcoming festival will carry on as normal. This highly anticipated summer festival gathers over 8,000 attendees and more than 75 artists and speakers. With four stages of live musical performances plus dynamic speaking sessions, SoulFest chooses an idyllic outdoor location that offers a plethora of options for attendees seeking a multi-faceted experience for all ages. 
SoulFest is proud to feature GRAMMY and Dove-award Winning Christian artists: Skillet, for KING & COUNTRY, Zach Williams, Crowder, We The Kingdom, and We Are Messengers. Also part of the 2022 lineup is Colton Dixon, Anne Wilson, Katy Nichole, Derek Minor, 1K Phew, Jon Keith, Seventh Day Slumber, Oh, Sleeper, Gable Price And Friends, Bob McCarthy, John Montgomery, and Billy Martin, ØM-53, plus many more listed at
In line with New Sound Concerts’ dedication to bringing Music, Love & Action to the forefront of SoulFest, it hosts a speaking series, featuring local and international speakers. The “Soul University” series is designed to converse with and engage the SoulFest audience on topics involving soul care, addiction, the intersection of faith and culture, as well as awareness leading to action in fighting social injustices such as labor and sex trafficking. 
Attendees participate in a variety of activities for all ages, such as shopping faith-oriented and fair-trade vendors and exhibitors, playing on inflatables, outdoor group games like archery tag, cornhole, and giant Jenga. Gunstock offers a zipline, mountain coaster, aerial treetop adventures, camping, swimming, and hiking trails. Attendees can also connect with the festival’s key Ministry Partners: the D.L. Moody Center, Thrivent Financial, Vision Trust, Love Justice, Make A Change, and Word of Life.
Scenic chair lift rides lead to the Mountain Top stage, an acoustic set up accompanied by a lush, panoramic view of Lake Winnipesaukee. New Sound is honored to once again feature this unique, life-changing event filled with inspirational music from award-winning artists and engaging workshops by world-renowned speakers, New Sound Concerts invites you to experience it all at once with the beautiful backdrop of New Hampshire’s Belknap Mountains for the last time at this location. The new location and 25th year celebration announcement will be made at SoulFest 2022.
