One21 Takes You To Cornerstone

Yes we are!  One21music is making the 18 hour trip to Cornerstone Music Festival 2010.  Nearly 500 Christian music artists and 30,000 fans will descend on a farm in southwestern Illinois for 6 days of  music, seminars, art, prayer, fellowship and camping.  We will do our best to give you the full experience without the mud and nasty communal showers.

Jesus People USA have been hosting Cornerstone Music Festival since 1984.  Originally, staged just outside of Chicago, Cornerstone Music Festival moved to its present location on a farm outside Bushnell, Illinois in 1991.  The festival has featured the biggest of the big music acts anchored by Christians.  We first saw mewithoutyou playing a afternoon show in 2001, learned turntablism from legendary DJ Scott Blackwell and we had our world rocked by Josh Garrels in 2008.  Through the years Mark Heard, Reliant K, Danielson, Pedro The Lion, MXPX and P.O.D. have all played Cornerstone Music Festival.

One21music is bringing a small team to try to cover the 13 stages and six seminar classroom tents.  We will be reviewing shows, uploading videos and photos, doing some interviews and reporting on the vibe of 30,000 stinky Christians jamming on music, art and the presence of 30,000 fellow believers.

We have mentioned the seminars (ranging from Missional Business to Innercity Evangelism to Christian/Science reconciliation).  There is also a Cornerstone Music Festival 2010 art festival and a film festival.  In addition there are 5K races and soccer tournaments.  But never forget that this is a music festival.  In the coming weeks we will give you a more detailed history of Cornerstone Music Festival, previews of the seminars and interviews with some of the bands.  To get started check out profiles and music samples of some of the bands that are playing Cornerstone 2010.
