K-LOVE 2014 Fan Zone
From Friday, May 30 through Sunday, June 1st, Christian music fans had a full weekend of fun and faith at the K-LOVE 2014 Fan Zone. The free event offered concerts (Mikeschair, Jamie Grace, Capital Kings, Royal Tailor, Hawk Nelson, Unspoken, Josh Wilson, Rhett Walker Band, Sidewalk Prophets, City Harbor, Kutless, 7eventhtimedown, The Afters, Love & The Outcome and Citizen Way), basketball challenges, chances to see memorabilia, games and more. A big part of the "more" was the myKLOVE mobile app. The developer was on hand along with several staffers from K-LOVE. Michelle Mariano, the Director of Digital Media for K-LOVE, talked about the app, saying, "MyKLOVE offers weekly challenges to go deeper into your faith and your walk with Jesus as well as resources from your favorite musicians, from best selling Christian authors, as well as pastors and Christian athletes. This weekend, for the fan awards, what we have is a share wall where people are putting praise reports, prayer requests and stories about how their lives are being connected. We have a map where people are putting dots that represent where they've come from or where God has put on their hearts to do service or a mission trip."
For those who wanted an even bigger "fan experience," weekend passes were for sale. For between $549 and $2089 per person, super fans got three nights at the Gaylord Opryland Resort, dinner with the K-LOVE staff and friends, a weekend kickoff concert, a late night "songwriters spotlight," breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, meet & greets with artists, a red carpet experience, a ticket to the K-LOVE Fan Awards Show, transportation to and from the awards show an invitation to a worship service led by Michael W. Smith on Sunday morning.
The 2015 Fan Awards are already open for registration with monthly payment plans.
