I guess it could be because Joyful Noise is certainly an event to remember! Joyful Noise is an annual music festival that brings together some of the biggest names in Christian Music at the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minnesota. Check out Joyful Noise for another idea of what the festival has been.
Joyful Noise is put on by the great folks at KTIS is a nonprofit Christian radio station Owned now by the University of Northwestern — St. The organization has touched the lives of thousands and has helped so many individuals get a second chance. Any given day Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge is working with over clients across Minnesota to help them out of their dark life situations, and it was awesome to see them as a sponsor of Joyful Noise The crowds.
What can I say other than the fact that it was so incredibly beautiful to see so many people out to celebrate at a Christian Music festival. Thousands of people came from all over to sing, dance, and worship together on what was shaping up to be a magnificent day.
On the first day we had the immense pleasure of witnessing the Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge Choir singing with the incredible Sanctus Real. Up next, Rend Collective. Joyful Noise had two amazing Irish bands at the event this year and they sure know how to kick up the energy and tell a great story.
The Irish Group inspired me and many others with their incredible music as well as an Irish retelling of the story of the prodigal son. The last artist to grace the stage for the night brought with them potentially one of my favorite moments from the entire festival.
David Crowder , who has gone by the stage name Crowder since , played some of his biggest hits. The crowd myself included broke out laughing before Crowder broke into the next song in his set.
The weather was another perfect Minnesota summer day that we have so few of. There are few things better than being with so many amazing friends on such a beautiful day. Though I was not previously very familiar with their story, it was a fantastic experience to learn more about them and be exposed to their pop-acoustic style. They draw upon the tribulations of their lives in their music to create an impact that was being felt by myself and everyone around me.
The next artist of the day was Plumb. Known for her alternative rock style, her energy helped get the crowd on their feet and excited to worship the lord.
Another great group from day two was We Are Messengers. They were the second Irish group to grace the stage and much like Rend Collective they have been experiencing success outside of their homeland. The next artist that took the stage on day two is one of my favorite Christian artists of all time, Matthew West. The final group of the night, and of the festival was Newsboys United.
I had seen these guys originally at the Minnesota State Fair when my oldest boys were teenagers. And they are still making amazing music. The Newsboys, having rocked it out since , have gone through several changes to the members of the band throughout the years, but one thing has remained the same, and that is their love of what they do.
Newsboys United loves people and loves performing and their appearance at Joyful Noise was a great reminder of that fact. Their performance solidified my love for them, and has me still singing their songs every other day. Joyful Noise was a life changing time of worship and fellowship with thousands of other individuals from all around the country and around the world. Get your tickets now!
