BlushUK, [crave], Verra Cruz, [dweeb] for expanded Wadebridge event

THE POPULAR West Country-based Christian music and teaching event Creation Fest, which this year expands to a six-day celebration to be held from 7th to 13th August at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge, have confirmed many of the participants at Creation Fest '09. Booked to appear are hip-hop and streetbeat team LZ7, Californian worship leader Scott Cunningham, rock funk iconoclasts [dweeb], rock evangelists Superhero, pop princess Philippa Hanna, Northern Irish fourpiece [crave], R&B girl group BlushUK, Bournemouth rock outfit Bosh, singer/songwriter Shell, blues rock journeymen Verra Cruz, acoustic rock and soul man Finchley and edgy rock trio The Steels.

The speakers set to minister are Brian Brodersen (senior pastor at Calvary Chapel Vista), Cheryl Brodersen, Bob Caldwell, Michael Smith, Phil Pechonis and Tony Cummings. Said festival organizer Phil Pechonis, "Over the years we have built up a successful event in Woolacombe, Devon but it became clear last year that we were outgrowing our present facilities. In view of this we have taken the bold step to relocate to the Royal Cornwall Showground. This will mean that some of the events and attractions will now be able to be held indoors, there will be hugely improved parking and camping facilities and there will be numerous other benefits. One of the things we are most pleased about is that Creation Fest will continue to be a free event, although a small charge is being made for camping facilities." CR
