They include a popular Christian rock act, a country music superstar, and a group that will make you flash back to the disco era of the 1970’s.

Alternative Christian Rock band NeedToBreathe will take the stage on June 21. They are known for hits like “Washed by the Water” and “Something Beautiful.” The band’s new album will be released in April.
