There’s a massive Christian music festival taking place at the end of August, and through this week, you can buy wristband tickets for a great price.

Through Friday, June 10, VIP tickets to Worship in the City, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26 and Saturday, Aug. 27, are only $38 for a weekend pass/$20 for a Friday-only pass and $22 for a Saturday only pass. After Friday, the price will rise to $46 for a weekend VIP wristband, $24 for a Friday-only VIP wristband, and $30 for a Saturday-only VIP wristband. VIP wristbands purchased at the gate will be $48 for the weekend, $28 for Friday and $30 for Saturday. The cost of a general admission wristband will not change on June 10.

Both VIP and general admission wristbands will include access to the regional/local stage, choir stage and all park activities; however, only those with a VIP wristband are guaranteed access to the main stage lawn. A jumbo-tron featuring a live stream of the main stage will be available for those with a general admission wristband. Artists performing on the main stage Friday will include MercyMe, Jars of Clay and Shane and Shane, and artists performing on the main stage Saturday will include Third Day, Hawk Nelson, Blind Boys of Alabama and Alberto and Kimberly Rivera.

In addition, the community will be invited to participate in our Feed the Need initiative, a combination of efforts designed to help alleviate hunger here and around the world. Festival organizers have joined forces with both Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee and Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian organization that distributes food to critically starving and malnourished children and their families the world over. Festival-goers and other community members will be asked to donate one hour of time over the course of the weekend to help prepare 1 million highly nutritious, prepackaged meals for Kids Against Hunger. From the staging area in the Knoxville Convention Center, Kids Against Hunger will redistribute those meals to starving children and their families in over 60 countries through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide. In addition, Worship in the City will provide both financial and in-kind support to Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee, which provides food, services and education to address the nutritional needs of people at risk of hunger in 18 East Tennessee counties. In order to support this work, organizers will donate $2 from every ticket sale to Second Harvest and sponsor a canned food drive throughout the weekend. In addition, organizers have arranged to keep 10 percent, or about 10,000, of meals packaged for redistribution to those experiencing chronic hunger in the East Tennessee area.

Besides live music, festival-goers will have access to live performance entertainment, exhibitions, art and events for families, all providing fun and education in an inclusive, child-friendly environment.
