Dear Fellow Music and Art Lovers!
X-fest is now in the process of finalizing plans for the 2010 Festival to be held Labor Day Weekend (September 3rd thru 5th), at the Skamania County Fairgrounds in Stevenson, Washington.

We exist to bring individuals together from various backgrounds to enjoy three days of  God,  music, art and worship!  We welcome everyone into a community where they matter. We endeavor to provide a safe place for those who have slipped through the cracks of church, family or society.  We are artists, musicians, dancers, and writers who love God passionately. Come and join in the fun. We look forward to meeting and getting to know you.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
