Featuring five unique stages, patrons will have the opportunity to main stage headliners in the world Christian music, positive internationally renowned speakers, comedians, and local talent on the Nashville’s Big Back Yard stage. Activities include family hours, archery, blood drives, movies, crafts, inflatables and more. Additionally, some of Middle Tennessee’s top food trucks will provide unique and fresh menus.

“We are honored to return to Middle Tennessee with Lifest Music City this year,” says Life Promotions President and Chief Visionary Officer Bob Lenz. “Our inaugural festival in 2021 spread a swath of excitement for our team and the attendees that came from over 30 states and 3 countries to our base camp in Bon Aqua, Tennessee at the farm of the legendary Johnny Cash. Knowing that this land became a special part of his spiritual journey solidifies the location for this uniquely curated festival.”

The festival will benefit the Dignity Revolution to engage in saving lives of those who are suffering with mental health. Dignity Revolution has partnered with the Professional Educators of Tennessee and virtually trained Tennessee educators on the Dignity Revolution Curriculum in 2021. The training is on the Professional Educators website and is available for any of the members to watch. In October of 2021, Dignity Revolution presented Humphreys County Schools with $500 to be used for their school system flood relief efforts. They were also gifted two Dignity Revolution assemblies ($4500 value). In addition to their involvement with the Professional Educators of Tennessee, Dignity Revolution has also trained educators from over 15 schools in the Tennessee area.

Lee. “It’s an honor to welcome visitors from across the nation for an event that will showcase our state’s rich musical heritage, boost local tourism and support Middle Tennessee’s thriving economy.”
