KB will headline SonFest at MVNU on Sept. 16 

 Mount Vernon Nazarene University is excited to announce KB will headline SonFest, an outdoor Christian music festival held on campus, on Saturday, Sept. 16, 2023. 

KB is an award-winning and chart-topping Florida rapper and entrepreneur who speaks from the street and scripture on his fourth full-length album, “His Glory Alone.” KB amplifies voices that need to be heard with energy, eloquence, and a whole lot of fire. 

“I’ve always wanted to make a project where a bunch of worlds converged,” KB said. “It’s who I am. I lived up North. I lived down South. I was a military kid in the security of a base. After my parents’ divorce, I was in the hood. College was benign, but I’d drive back home to concentrated poverty. All of these different experiences shaped me, made me who I am, and defined my musical palette. My dream was to bring other worldly God-centered lyricism to trap. The idea has been in my heart for a long time. I finally made it happen on ‘His Glory Alone.’ The things I love most — prayer, celebrating God, and music — come together to hopefully encourage, empower, and heal.” 

SonFest 2023 is bringing a lineup full of the hottest Christian artists. Joining KB on the main stage are Aaron Cole, Joseph O’Brien, The Young Escape, Damac, and others. A second stage will keep the music playing all day. 

In addition to endless music, SonFest will include food trucks, fire performers, archery tag, yard games, inflatables, and more! 

SonFest is held rain or shine at The Grove on the MVNU campus, 800 Martinsburg Road, Mount Vernon, Ohio. Gates open at noon with music and activities scheduled until 10 p.m. Acts are subject to change without notice.  

Early bird discounted tickets are available July 5-16. General Admission tickets at this discounted rate are $25 for adults and $10 for children; with groups of 10 or more are just $20 per person. Prices increase to $30 for adults and $15 for children for General Admission and $25 for Group tickets starting July 17. All tickets purchased on the day of SonFest will be $35.
