Winter Jam 2013 will also feature TobyMac, Matthew West, Sidewalk Prophets, Jamie Grace, Jason Castro, Royal Tailor, Red, Capital Kings, OBB and speaker Nick Hall.

Opening Friday in Charleston, West Virginia, the show moves to Charlotte on Saturday and then Chattanooga, Tennessee on Sunday to close out a busy first weekend.

“It will be the largest tour in the first part of the year,” says Billy Goodwin of NewSong, who has been organizing the event for 31 years.

WinterJam 2013“I guess we say this every year, but we have the best lineup we’ve ever had. God blessed us as we pull the lineup together. TobyMac, who has toured with us 2-3 times and we love the fellowship with him….and his incredible music,” Goodwin says.

The 2011 tour, through April, had 500,000 or more in attendance, outpacing attendance for all other tours in the first quarter of 2011, including Bon Jovi, U2, X Factor Live, Lady Gaga, Brad Paisley and Justin Bieber, according to Pollstar’s 2011 Worldwide First Quarter Ticket Sales “Top 100 Tour” chart.

Winter Jam is a ministry, or a “traveling church” as Goodwin put it, and there’s commitment to the $10 general admission process at the door.
