Lifelight’s Rawkzilla Showcase


Cool…So What’s This Showcase About?

Each year LifeLight receives many requests from bands all over the country, and even the world, to play at one of our Festivals.  We are honored that bands would seek us out to be an extension of their ministries; however, in order to accommodate as many artists as possible, we’ve had to develop a procedure for choosing those that play at the Festival.

LifeLight has partnered with Rawkzilla and American Battle to provide bands an opportunity to play at the Festival through the Rawkzilla Showcase.

We are looking for great bands with great ministry hearts!  Our main focus as a ministry is Jesus and sharing the message of Hope that comes from knowing Him as Savior. We seek for bands that not only can play great music but who also have this heart to share Christ in their spheres of influence.

The Rawkzilla Showcase is for any band, signed or not signed.  All you have to do is fill out the registration form, build a band profile and share your profile to get your FAME rating up!

The competition will be conducted online through the band profiles. The online winner will then receive a slot on one of LifeLight’s stages at the 2016 Festival over Labor Day weekend. AND the winner will advance to the Christian Festival Association’s National Talent Search.*

Here’s what our judge panel will be looking for:

-Professional and polished sound/style
-Ministry & beliefs made evident on website and/or social media
-Public following on social media outlets, especially Facebook & Twitter
-FAME rating on band profile (this is highly considered, but NOT the main qualifier)

If you feel you have the passion and drive to win a chance to play at festivals throughout the country, not to mention play on a LifeLight major stage, then you’ll want to register here! Will you be our next winner?

*The CFA national winner is also awarded stage time at all participating CFA festivals for the following year. LifeLight’s showcase winners, We Are Leo (2013) and Lybecker (2014), Good Little Giants (2015) have gone on to win the national CFA Talent Search. Our 2014 winner, Princeton Marcellis, went on to finish in the top 3 artists.

Registration ends June 15th 2016.

Who is LifeLight?

LifeLight Communications, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Evangelistic Proclamation Organization. LifeLight’s ministry is made up of three areas: Festivals, Missions and Outreach. Yet it is ONE ministry with ONE mission, “Taking the Church outside the walls, bringing Light into the darkness with the life-changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” In everything we do, we must answer one question, “How is the Gospel going to be presented?” This is our common denominator, plain and simple.

The South Dakota Festival is the largest and most well known aspect of the ministry and is offered at no admission charge to the public.  LifeLight’s founding principle is to offer all festivals at no admission so that ALL may come and ALL may hear the Gospel message. Beginning on a church lawn for one night in 1998, it has since become one of the nation’s largest music festivals. Held annually over Labor Day weekend in Sioux Falls, S.D., the festival attracts hundreds of thousands of people from all over the country and world.
