Larger attendance expected at Crossfire Festival

THE ORGANISERS of Liverpool's Crossfire Festival are expecting a larger attendance this year. The Festival, held on the weekend of the 28th to the 30th of June, annually attracts between six and eight thousand people to its Aintree Racecourse site.

After the 1990 Festival, a decision was taken to hold Crossfire gigs during the year, showcasing talented Christian artists and keeping up the momentum in the build up to the seventh Crossfire Festival in 1991. Acts that appeared included Big White House, House Of God and Keith Ayling.

Headlining the Festival itself will be Martyn Joseph, Ben Okafor, Triumph and Destiny Calling. New and up-and-coming acts will be featured in the Barn venue and on the Village Green.

"Although the festival is aimed at young people" say the organisers, "we would also encourage families to come, as there are lots of things for the children to do.

There is also a full seminar programme for adults which includes Life in the Spirit, The New Age and Living in Hope." CR
