Creation Festival has been a staple in the Christian music world for 44 years, even having launched during the Jesus Movement of the 1970's. This year's line-up was to boast some of the biggest names in Christian music, including Switchfoot, We The Kingdom, Big Daddy Weave, Mac Powell, Riley Clemmons, KB, and Katy Nichole. Sadly, the festival has decided to call it quits, only a couple days after announcing what was to be the daily lineup.

Below is the official announcement from Creation Fest:

An Update on Creation Fest

"It is with much prayer and consideration that the leadership of Creation Festival announce the end of the longstanding, multi-day event historically held at Agape Farm in Shirleysburg, PA. This event, birthed in the Jesus Movement, provided hope through the Gospel and music to millions of people over the past 44 years. Due to many factors, we as a leadership team have decided that this chapter in the Life of Creation Fest has come to a close. We are saddened but also hopeful for what God has in store for what’s next.

Thank you to all who have been a part of our story. Together we have seen God do the following:

115,000 people chose to follow Christ as their Savior.

16,000+ people have been water baptized at the festival.

2.1 million have attended and worshiped our Creator together.

43,000 people have served the festival, many for a decade or more.

43,000+ children have been rescued from poverty through Compassion International

and other child sponsorship programs.

All current ticket holders will receive a refund. A subsequent announcement on where to access your refund will be forthcoming. As we draw this season to a close, we ask you to join us in prayer as we look to launch a New Vision for 2024 that will reach this next generation with the truth and hope of Jesus. Thank you for partnering with us in ministry for these past many years. We are excited to dream about what the festival will look like for the next generation.

We look forward to unveiling the future plans during this new era of ministry."
