Christian music artists in town for Spirit West Coast

The top performers in the Christian music industry will gather at the Del Mar fairgrounds May 28-30 for a three-day ministry and music festival known as Spirit West Coast.

Thousands are expected to attend the festival, which also includes camping, children’s activities, sporting events, speakers and seminars, games, a skate park, an Indie-artist competition, stand-up comedians, food, shopping and fellowship.

There will also be a Christian film festival running throughout the weekend, courtesy of Outreach films. Since the first Spirit West Coast in 1997, the festival has been a ministry partner with the Christian child development organization, Compassion International. Compassion ministers to kids in Third World countries by providing food, clothing, education and Christian ministry on a child-by-child basis.

The stories of lives changed and challenged at Spirit West Coast are what drives the festival each year, according to organizers.

The big draw, however, may be the 50 artists performing on eight stages, including Jars of Clay, Steven Curtis Chapman, Newsboys, Jeremy Camp, Family Force 5, Tenth Avenue North, Kutless, Bread of Stone, Phil Joel, Hawk Nelson, and many more. For the performance schedule, visit
