Back in the 60â€™s and 70â€™s there was a â€œJesus Movementâ€ in the United States where a lot of young people involved in drugs, rock & roll, and the anti-establishment hippie culture found â€œsalvation in Jesusâ€ and turned to writing music centered on Christ. Pretty soon, there were enough people interested in the genre, that in 1979 Creation Festivals were started as an alternative venue to traditional rock concerts.
[..]Creationfest, [is] a four-day Christian rock show-cum-revival held every summer in Eastern Washington where religion, politics, and music collide. It is here that thousands of eager young Christians gather to worship, save souls, and get â€œCrunk on Christâ€. Jesus Freaks takes you deep into the heart of this contemporary Christian culture where religion and rock nâ€™ roll make strange bedfellows. (25 mins)
Quotable quote: â€œI betcha Jesus can, like, ya know, heâ€™s the baddest b-boy in the world, ya know what Iâ€™m sayingâ€”he can do the windmill while doing the robot and the electric boogaloo at the same time, ya know.â€
