RiseFest 2019 announces first artist: Skillet | News

SHELDON—RiseFest has announced the first artist on the 2019 festival lineup, the Grammy-nominated rock band Skillet.

The group will headline the Friday night of RiseFest 2019 on June 21 in Sheldon.

“It’s that time of year again — RiseFest artist announcements! For the first time, Skillet will be joining the RiseFest lineup, and we couldn’t be more excited!” said Rob Roozeboom, president and founder of Rise Ministries. “Also, now is the perfect time to get tickets as we have launched the RiseFest PriceSlide through the month of November. It’s new, it’s exciting and it’s the only way to get your tickets as low as possible.”

Skillet lets its music speak the loudest. That’s how the quartet has cemented its place as one of the 21st century’s most successful rock bands.

Selling more than 11 million units worldwide, the Wisconsin quartet — John Cooper on lead vocals and bass, Korey Cooper on guitar and keys, Jen Ledger on drums and vocals, and Seth Morrison on lead guitars — has received two Grammy nominations and won a Billboard Music Award for the platinum-certified album “Awake.”

The group’s double-platinum single “Monster” was the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015 on Spotify and earned the distinction of becoming the best-selling digital single in the history of Christian music.

Tickets for RiseFest 2019 are on sale with a new twist.

During the month of November the RiseFest PriceSlide invites festivalgoers to do their part in lowering ticket prices by as much as 46 percent, potentially all the way to $21. The more people who reserve their tickets by Nov. 30, the lower the price will go. Children 10 and under are free. Tickets may be purchased at

RiseFest features well-known and up-and-coming Christian artists. In addition to musical acts, attendees can visit seminars and listen to speakers. Children can play games and make crafts in the Kids Zone. Junior and senior high school-age students can participate in their respective, specially catered youth areas.

Those traveling out of town can buy camping spaces for trailers or tents to stay the weekend.

Rise Ministries, along with its sponsors, partners and volunteers, seek to make the atmosphere of the event fun and meaningful for all ages.
