Creation Festival: rock’n'roll but no sex and drugs


creation4.jpgMOUNT UNION, Pa. – From Woodstock to Glastonbury, summer music festivals have long been heaven for kids wanting to get in trouble a long way from home.

Creation is different. One of the biggest Christian music festivals in the United States, it has a dress code (no bare bellies for girls, shirts to be worn at all times by both sexes) and alcohol and drugs are strictly off limits.

Amy Grant , a pioneer in Christian music who made a surprise appearance at Creation last month, said most of the 70,000 people attending the festival listen to secular as well as Christian music. She attended the Bonnaroo festival as a fan herself.
