Named among the most thoughtful, progressive and exciting acts in contemporary Christian music by The New York Times, the popular yet unconventional David Crowder Band unveiled their final collection of new music this year with the release of Give Us Rest or (a requiem mass in c [the happiest of all keys]). As the follow-up to the Grammy-nominated Church Music, Give Us Rest gave the band the highest debut of their career, selling over 50,000 units in one week and landing them in the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Top 200.
A second stage will feature additional artists Undeserving, Willet, Bread of Stone, da Mac, Sons, Come Wind, and Sight Unseen. There will also be free inflatables for all ages, festival food and giveaways. SonFest is a rain-or-shine event.
