I know many of these artists only because my sister is a Christian rock fan. I wonder why they moved from the MK?

They are also doing a Christian concert weekend at Universal (same weekend too)

Its the same weekend as the pin event . EEK
And I know the answer to that Johnie as silly as this may seem for Christians , there were complaints of no alcohol at the MK, so they moved it to DHs . And that came from a very reliable source .
