In Longmont, not all happy about Christian music fest
LONGMONT, Colo. – A large Christian music festival is moving to Longmont this summer. But not everyone in Longmont is happy about it.
Heaven Fest is expected to bring 30,000 people to hear some 70 Christian music acts on July 31. The Longmont City Council has given preliminary approval to Heaven Fest, which is moving from a field near Brighton.
Heaven Fest promoters say the music festival could pump $700,000 into the local economy. But some residents oppose the plan to held the concerts at the city’s Union Reservoir. Some residents say the seven stages, plus parking for 30,000 people, will leave the reservoir environmentally harmed.
Organizers have pledged to restore any damage to the land from the festival.
