Kentucky will play host to its first River Rock Music Festival this weekend.
The event Friday and Saturday near Wilmore is the first Christian music festival of this type at a popular Jessamine County venue in five years.
The River Rock Music Festival is taking place at the Servant Heart Farm grounds off U.S. Highway 68 in Jessamine County. It is being held on the same property where the Ichthus Christian Festival featured similar bands for many years.
River Rock is not connected with the former Ichthus organization. But, much like that event, the two-day festival will include contemporary Christian bands, speakers, and camping.
Among the bands performing are Newsboys, Jeremy Camp, Hawk Nelson, and Danny Gokey. The River Rock music Festival runs through Saturday night.
