Festival To Bring Top Christian Music Artists to South Jersey
The First Love Festival on Saturday September 10, 2011 at Buena Vista Camping Resort, Buena NJ, is bringing some of Christian music’s biggest acts to perform in what organizers hope to become one of the largest events in the Delaware Valley

The festival, which begins at 11:00am and ends at approximately 10:00pm, will feature a full day of music ranging from contemporary and pop music to the rock genres.
One of the organizers of the event, a Vineland resident, states that “Music festivals such as what we have planned are hosting as many as 35 to 40 thousand people”. “One of the nation’s largest Christian festivals, Creation, hosted eighty thousand people over 4 days this year.” “From an operations standpoint we can conceivably handle five to six thousand people this year.” “We expect to sell out and double in size next year.”
Festival organizers have been taken back to learn that news of the event has reached as far as Chicago and North Carolina when they were contacted by independent artists expressing an interest in performing. “We were simply opening emailed music files, listening to their audition material, and looking over their contact information when we said wait a minute! These guys are from Chicago! How did they find out about this? Others were from North Carolina, Maryland, and other states in the region. We haven’t marketed the festival in those areas and we’re still not quite sure how they heard about it.”
Artists scheduled to appear include one of the biggest names in Christian rock, The 2010 Dove Award nominee for Rock Album of the Year and multiple award winning Thousand Foot Krutch, who are known for hits such as “Move” and “Rawkfist”;
includes Dove Award nominee for New Artist of the Year Christian Pop Rock artist Addison Road,with radio hits “Hope Now” and “This Little Light of Mine” and Christian contemporary radio hit makersRemedy Drive with songs “Daylight”
Although the event is being promoted as a music festival by Venom Marketing Group LLC ,there will be plenty to do for the whole family. Bookstores, clothing vendors, and other establishments will form a retail gallery and a food court will serve up some of the best recipes South Jersey has to offer. Children’s activities are planned for youngsters and Buena Vista Camping Resort offers RV, cabin, and tent site rentals.
