The first festival we talked about was the 28th annual Alive Festival, which will take place June 17th – 20th at Atwood Lake Park in Mineral City, Ohio.

We also talked about the Creation Festival Northeast. This festival is June 24th – 27th at the Agape Farm in Mt. Union, Pennsylvania- perfect for a fun, mini-road trip!

There will also be performances from Colton Dixon, Blanca, Natalie Grant, Matthew West, and many more of your favorite artists. For all the details on that festival, click here!

Another festival that starts just one day later than Creation Northeast is SpiritSong, which combines two awesome things – concerts and roller coasters! This festival takes place June 25th – 27th at Kings Island Amusement Park in Mason and, like the previously mentioned festivals, has an AWESOME lineup! You can catch Newsboys, Kari Jobe, For King & Country, Skillet, Jeremy Camp, Colton Dixon, Sidewalk Prophets, Tenth Avenue North, Love & the Outcome, and more!

If you don’t want to attend an entire festival, but still want to catch some live music this summer, we highlighted a couple concerts you can see.

If you’re a fan of Rend Collective, they’ll be at Grove City United Methodist Church on Sunday, June 28th. You can check out all the information on that concert here.

You can also check out Christ Tomlin at the Ohio State Fair on Monday, August 3rd. The concert starts at 7pm and you can get all the information on that over here!

And, even though it isn’t happening until September 26th, we gave some information on SonFest 2015! The first three artists who have been announced are Colton Dixon, Leeland, and I Am They. More artists will be added to the lineup soon, and we’ll tell you as soon as they’re announced. Tickets will go on sale soon and you can head over here to find out how to get those and for all the other information on SonFest 2015.

Our word of the day was Yooper, which is a native or resident of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. (I like to imagine there’s a superhero who lives on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan who is named that Super Yooper)

Joe was also excited about his Soda Pop Shoppe Jelly Belly jelly beans. We tried all the different flavors – Orange and Grape Crush, A&W Root Beer and Cream Soda, 7-Up, and Dr. Pepper. If you could create any flavor of jelly bean, what would it be?

Have a great evening and thanks for listening!
