The 2-day indoor event will take place in the small-town of Ennepetal, Germany, next to Wuppertal and Hagen, 50 km outside of Düsseldorf. It’s a -day Christian rock indoor festival, with 17 Christian rock bands to perform in front of about 1,200 fans attending. Many of them come from all over Germany and adjacent countries, in particular Holland and Switzerland. It’s a pretty much international crowd. The festival has been hosted by CVJM Ennepetal Rüggeberg e.V. from its beginnings in 1980 till today, and throughout all the years it took place at the venue “Haus Ennepetal”, which is the communal centre for the cultural life in the town. There are 4 areas, mainstage on the first floor, a much smaller sidestage on the ground floor, an area for the meet & greets with all bands and another area for the bands’ merch. So there is always the choice for the people attendiing to see a band either on mainstage or sidestage or to meet the musicians. The doors open on Friday at 16:30 hrs, first band to be on stage at 17:00 hrs. On Saturday doors open at 14:30 hrs, bands playing form 15:00 hrs until the end of the festival at shortly after midnight. On Saturday midday there is a service in a nearby church, we welcome Joseph Rojas of Seventh Day Slumber for the sermon and a couple of guys from Wolves At The Gate to play some acoustic and worship songs.
