Newboys, Lecrae,  Tenth Avenue North, Thousand Foot Krutch and Plumb top the list of ten acts, hosted by Newsong, traveling to arenas on the east coast during the first three months of 2014.

#winterjam was just rocked by @lecrae! was one tweet with the star featured in a photo, cheering the massive crowd into a frenzy.

Ten acts for ten dollars is the tagline of the tour, welcoming everyone with the lower ticket price.

“It’s a great chance to get 9 or 10 bands a night on stage, a lot who will become my friends…Families show up all excited to see the bands play…it’s a great time,” said Michael Tait in an interview with The Global Dispatch.

Tait is the frontman for the headliner Newsboys and highlights the show when he rides a lift high into the air during the show – check out a photo below.

Here’s the East Coast lineup: Newsboys, Lecrae, Tenth Avenue North, Thousand Foot Krutch, PLUMB, NewSong, Colton Dixon, Love & The Outcome, Everfound, Derek Minor & Speaker Nick Hall.

The next show is in Charleston, West Virginia and then back to North Carolina for a show in Charlotte on Sunday. Next week Jamtour heads to Alabama, Florida and Tennessee for four shows.
