The AgapeFest is a Christian festival held in Greenville, IL. This year the festival will be held at the Bond County Fair grounds on May 2-3, 2008. This year marks the 31st anniversary of the festival, and should prove to be the best festival yet. Nearly 7,000 attendees are expected at the fairgrounds, which will encompass 2 stages and many interesting vendors.

The AgapeFest is now accepting submissions from Sonicbids artists for their Battle of the Bands competition. All genres of rock are accepted and don’t necessarily need to be Christian music. All submissions should have clean, non-offensive lyrics Live judging for the Battle will take place in 2 rounds.

Round 1: Fifteen selected artists will be chosen to perform at The Black Room, on the Greenville College campus on April 12, 2008. Bands will be allotted a 10 minute set to perform one song. A panel of 4 Judges will select 5 finalists.

Round 2: Finalists will perform on the second stage at the AgapeFest on May 2, 2008. Artists will have a 15 minute time slot, and will be judged by the audience and a panel of judges.
