Bolingbrook Joyfest aims to entertain

From LXW Chicago and Zacardi Cortez to James Fortune, the Bolingbrook music scene will move crowds to lift up their voices and sing next month. Bolingbrook Joyfest returns Sept. 8 to the Bolingbrook Performing Arts Festival in Bolingbrook. “The community has many different events,” said Sheldon Watts, chairman of the Bolingbrook Joyfest Planning Committee. “The festival’s whole premise is to establish an event for the Christian community. It’s open to the public, and everyone is welcome. It brings the Christian community together for praise and fellowship.” Admission is free and the community is invited. The festival has a lineup featuring Adrian B. King and Reverence, Darius Brooks, and the praise teams for Crossroads of Faith and Compass Church. Watts said the festival aims to showcase a diverse sound from the Christian music scene.
