Festival of Faith and Music
Calvin College, Grand Rapids
April 11-13
(616) 526-7587

Having just now reached its 10th year in existence, Calvin College's biennial Festival of Faith and Music has really outdone itself this year in terms of lineup, sponsorship, workshops, and lineup. Oh, did we mention the lineup really kicks a whole lotta faith-based booty, too? Try this one on for size: keynote speakers Chuck Klosterman (he of Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs fame), noted religion columnist Cathleen Falsani, and hip-hop theologian (yup, that's a thing) Daniel White Hodge are ready to kick off the festival-wide conversation about faith, music and culture, while musicians like Andrew Bird, The Welcome Wagon and Andrew Rose Gregory have geared up to provide the musical component to this 72-hour dissection of what makes spirituality musical and music spiritual. The weather is warming up and tickets are going quick; don't be the last music manic to arrive at the festival's faith feast table. -Reported by Emma Kat Richardson
