Winterfest tickets on sale
While it may seem early to be thinking about the best way to ring in the New Year, Winterfest tickets are currently on sale at the super early bird price.
Winterfest is a Liberty tradition, and 2014 marks its 14th year, according to Liberty’s website.
Bands like Skillet, For King and Country and Newsboys will be playing in the Vines Center Dec. 30-31.
“Strictly from the concert standpoint, it’s a great value,” Liberty alumnus David Baldwin said.
Baldwin worked security for the 2005 event. According to Liberty’s website, 80 Liberty students volunteer every year.
On both days, Winterfest will be presenting Artist Question and Answers in the afternoon before doors open. The concerts begin at 6 p.m. both nights and go until midnight.
According to Liberty’s website, annual attendance is about 8,000 people, but thanks to the expansion of the Vines Center this year with 1,400 additional seats, Winterfest is able to offer more tickets to the event.
Ordering tickets before Sept. 22, allows for savings of 25 percent off the price of admission, making general admission tickets only $68, according to Winterfest’s website.
Winterfest will also be streaming the Lynchburg event online. More information about how to access the live stream will be added to the Winterfest website in the days leading up to the event.
Tickets are available at the event’s website, libertywinterfest.com.
