Winter Jam, a Christian music festival, was at the U of I Assembly Hall on January 25. Many DCS students attended this event. Several great Christian artists played. Colton Dixon, Thousand Foot Krutch and Lecrae all performed. The headline act for the night was the Newsboys.
This year was my first year of attendance. I had a lot more fun than I thought I would. With all of the DCS students there you can always find a friend to be with. Also many people from other churches in the area were there. I found this aspect of the concert surprising. It was extremely difficult for me to go three minutes without seeing someone I knew. I found the huge aspect of community at this event amazing. I personally would recommend every student to make it to at least one Winter Jam tour in their high school career.
