The third Cross Rhythms festival to be held on new site at Okehampton.

EVANGELIST and Bible teacher Tony Fitzgerald is flying in from Richmond, Virginia especially for the Cross Rhythms Festival. The event, now in its third year, is to be held on a new site at Okehampton, Devon on the 9th, 10th and 11th of July.

Negotiations are underway to bring in a major American Christian music artist to head up the event which organiser Chris Cole describes as a "unique blend of contemporary music and Holy Spirit ministry". Artists, so far confirmed for the festival as Cross Rhythms goes to press include techno-praise band 65 dBA, roots rock team Eden Burning (returning for their third consecutive Cross Rhythms), Scotland's worship leader Ian White, radical indie band Pity The Small Thumbs, Canadian rocker Johnny Markin, singer/songwriter Shirley Novak, roots band Nuffsed, rave aggregation the World Wide Message Tribe and AOR team After The Fall.

The event, this year entitled Holy Power, is expected to attract 5,000 people from all over Britain. CR
