Play at the coolest alternative Christian music event on the planet, Cornerstone Festival 2008! This is the ultimate festival experience that happens each summer on its own 700-acre campground, which includes a 125-acre lake in mid-state Illinois, just four miles from Bushnell. This annual 4-day music blowout features 10 stages and offers live music all day and night in front of over 20,000 fans.

The festival celebrates diversity in music and features hundreds of local, regional and national performers with a connection to the Christian faith, whether in their personal lives or through their music. Genres include everything - alternative, rock n' roll, hardcore, punk, folk and more.

Cornerstone 2008 will be held June 30th - July 5th and will continue to provide exciting and affordable entertainment (fun for all ages and musical tastes), workshops and seminars, plus a variety of food, shopping and children's activities. Cornerstone is THE summer destination. Recent sponsors include, Greenvile
