Crossover Music Festival moves to new date
Organizers of the Crossover Music Festival have announced a new date for the annual music event and a partnership with the Ozarks Amphitheater. Crossover 2020 will be a revised two day event starting July 24, 2020. This will replace the August dates originally planned. After discussions with the Amphitheater management team, Crossover is excited to announce that it will be hosting two time GRAMMY award winning artists “for KING & COUNTRY”, one of the premier Christian bands in the US. The band also completed a world tour in 2019, selling out most of their international venues, including the iconic Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia. “We are both excited and honored to partner with the Ozarks Amphitheater to become the named host for this amazing night of music and ministry”, says Alan Sullivan, Crossover Festival Director. The band for KING & COUNTRY features brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone. The brothers learned much of their musical craft during their teen years by touring with their sister, Rebecca St. James. As a part of Crossover history, some may remember that Rebecca St. James headlined Crossover at the amphitheater in 2003, with still popular band Skillet as her back up.
Crossover held annual festivals at the amphitheater from 1999 to 2010, resuming the event again in 2018. In 2019 the Festival returned to a multi-day format with Friday and Saturday concerts and the Sunday morning community service, Crossover Worship. In 2020, Crossover will be Friday night, July 24. As an added perk, the $77 dollar ticket holders will be allowed early entry at 5pm with an opportunity to attend a Q&A with the band. Normal gates will open at 6PM, with the first opening band at 7PM.
Also returning for its third year on Sunday evening July 26, is Crossover Worship. This year, beginning at 6PM, Crossover Worship will be a celebration for the entire community. “This interdenominational church service is for everyone regardless of church affiliation and is an opportunity for all of us to celebrate unity in our very divided world”, says Sullivan. He added, “We wanted to include as many churches and people as possible, so we have moved Crossover Worship to Sunday evening rather than Sunday morning as in past years”. The Crossover Worship Band will consist of musicians and vocalists from multiple area churches.
The Amphitheater will have additional seats available for those that wish to self-distance themselves from crowds. The Amphitheater will also be providing enhanced cleaning of the facility to provide a clean and safe environment for Festival attendees.
