Revelation Generation: Christian bands entertain the masses at concert

On Saturday, September 4, nearly 50 Eastern students took a day-trip to Revelation Farms in New Jersey.

They were anything but alone. With over sixty musical artists including major label acts such as The Devil Wears Prada and Anberlin, it is no surprise that this year’s Revelation Generation had an expected attendance of more than 30,000 people.

For six years, Revelation Generation has been providing people with an enormous musical experience with truly something for everyone. Enjoy the heaviest, most aggressive music you can find? Impending Doom can do it for you. Prefer Hip-Hop? Just pop into the urban tent to see Tedashii. There’s even a tent for Bluegrass and Country.

Regardless of style, all the bands performed phenomenally, and fan reaction was good. A positive atmosphere pervaded the 140 acres of land that housed the festivities, brought on by speakers who encouraged the crowd to be safe and have a good time.

Most importantly though, Revelation Generation most likely had the safest mosh pits you could find. The reason behind this is that Christ is the true focus of and driving force behind Revelation Generation.

Speakers would open each set with encouraging words centered upon Him, many beginning with a prayer before even the toughest bands. The day was eventually topped off by Grammy-nominated rock band Skillet. They put on an explosive show which provided the perfect epilogue to a full day of energetic and empowered performances.
