GND Music, under the leadership of Troy Duhon, executive producer of the film God’s Not Dead, has partnered with Harry Thomas, Jr., co-founder of Come Alive International to bring interactive elements to the industry’s largest Christian music festivals. The Creation festivals currently include Creation Northeast, Creation Northwest, Sonshine Festival, and the Ichthus Festival, which will relaunch in 2015.

Creation Festivals include six performance stages, in addition to an Extreme Fun Zone, kids entertainment and activities, exhibits, and interactive experiences. These festivals have featured artists including TobyMac, Switchfoot, Casting Crowns, Building 429, Newsboys, and more.

“I am so excited to become part of the Creation Festivals and its incredible history,” says Duhon. “Our goal is to help improve and expand the festivals by creating multimedia events that include advanced video technology and incredible movies. We will create future events under the Come Alive name that will be geared toward millennials. We want to be at the cutting edge with youth.”

The Creation Festivals currently consist of Creation Northeast, set for June 25-28 in Mt. Union, Pa.; Sonshine Festival, July 16-19 in Willmar, Minn.; and Creation Northwest, July 30-Aug. 2 in Kennewick, Wash. The 2015 relaunch of the Ichthus Festival is scheduled for July 8-11 in Lexington, Ky.
