Winter Jam Brings Christian Rock to Penn State

Penn State has been doing a really impressive job bringing in big-name artists to State College this year. Although a few have been postponed, I can’t think of any year when we had this many artists rolling through Happy Valley. And it’s not just the numbers, it’s also been the great variety: Bruce Springsteen, Zac Brown Band, Green Day, Pretty Lights and Tiesto, Maybach Music, Cobra Starship, and of course the unknown Movin’ On. All of these groups bring different styles to the table. Well, now we have another genre to add to the list: Christian rock.

Some of the biggest names in Christian rock are making their way to the Bryce Jordan Center on Friday, January 18th for the 2013 Winter Jam Tour. Artists like NewSong and (my personal favorite) RED plan to rock out the BJC while spreading the message of the Gospel through the power of music. This is a Christian rock show, but of course you don’t need to be Christian to come and enjoy the music. Here’s the full list of artists playing at Winter Jam 2013:

  • TobyMac
  • RED
  • Matthew West
  • Jamie Grace
  • NewSong
  • Sidewalk Prophets
  • Royal Tailor
  • Jason Castro
  • Oswald Brothers Band (OBB)
  • Capital Kings
  • Speaker: Nick Hall

This is a ticketless event, but there is a $10 entry fee at the door.
