RiseFest announces First Band for 2019 Festival Line-up 

RiseFest has announced the first artist on the 2019 liine-up.

Festival Founder and President Rob Roozeboom says Grammy-nominated band Skillet will kick off the Festival on June 21.  "They are a Christian rock band, probably one of the biggest Christian rock bands in the industry, and it's a band that we have talked about and considered for years, and have been working on probably for the last 4 or 5 years, and so to be able to bring them in this year is pretty exciting for us."

He adds that the festival has launched special advanced ticket pricing with the RiseFest Priceslide.  "We launched something brand new this year called the priceslide, and what that means is, you have the opportunity to kind of set price of the tickets yourself.  When you go to buy tickets for Rise, you commit to buying a ticket, and for the next 3 weeks we're doing commit, share, and then at the end, you all end up paying the same price."
