Summer is officially here and that means this girl is going to be on the move! I am excited to share my summer adventures with you and it is my hope that you leave feeling inspired to try something new this summer, go somewhere new, or take a new adventure!
I had the opportunity to attend Fish Fest 2014 this weekend (an annual event I hadn’t attended in about ten years!) with a couple of girlfriends and I had a great time! We were fortunate enough to have seats in the shade (a huge plus for this pale-skinned girl!) and have gorgeous views of Orange County, CA while we listened to a fabulous line-up of Christian artists! There is a main stage and a side stage but to save ourselves the hike up and down the hill from our seats, we decided to just stick it out at the main stage. The afternoon kicked off with Dara Maclean and her set included her song, Wanted. I have listened to this song on repeat quite a bit, so I was super excited to hear it live! The afternoon continued with Jonathan Thulin, Plumb, and Graham Saber, before Tenth Avenue North took the stage. I absolutely love Tenth Avenue North and for me, they were the highlight of the day! I don’t want to give you an exact number, but their songs have a play count somewhere in the hundreds on my iTunes. I literally listen to their songs over and over and over, and I don’t get tired of listening…something that absolutely baffles my brother! And they were even better live! Outstanding stage presence, very engaging, and incredibly genuine. There was something pretty amazing about 16,000 people lifting their hands and worshiping during their set.
Jeremy Camp and Mercy Me wrapped up a great afternoon and evening! I enjoyed spending time with friends, being outside to enjoy the beautiful Southern California weather, and listening to great music! It may have been ten years since I last attended FishFest, but I don’t intend to let another 10 years pass before I go again!
What’s the best concert you’ve ever attended? Do you have any music festivals near you that are a must attend?
