As an exciting finale to this years Alive Festival,  four top UK Christian bands are heading to Inverness for a very special worship concert, with Lou Fellingham and Phatfish headlining the evening.

The event, which is being billed as a 'Mini Frenzy'  is all age, and contains a real blend of vibrant modern Christian music and the more contemporary sounds of worship. This is a great opportunity for the whole Christian community to come together and be part of the biggest indoor Christian event to hit Inverness!   

David Maclean, Festival Director comments:

I am thrilled that we have managed to secure these bands for our very first Alive Festival main event, it will be a fantastic night of worship and fellowship together. Lou Fellingham and Phatfish have been at the leading edge of Christian music for a number of years and have led worship at Soul Survivor and Spring Harvest, so its really exciting to get them to lead this event for us. LZ7, The Steels and Superhero represent the exciting fresh face and sound of modern worship music, with the youth loving their live shows, so it promises to be very special and not to be missed!

It's also great to be able to use the Ironworks venue for this event, it will be a great witness for our city to have the sound of Christian music filling the city centre on a Saturday night!

A lot of organisation and hard work has gone into making this night happen, so I would really encourage the whole Christian Community of the Highlands to come along and support this night.

 David and the team have  put a lot of organisation and hard work into making this night happen on would want to encourage the whole Christian community around the Highlands to come along and support the event.

The evening starts with Manchester based LZ7, a band who many enjoyed at the Luis Palau Festival in 2009. LZ7 scored a Top 30 UK hit last year with "This Little Light!", and their high energy vibrant stage show is a massive hit with the youth. With an energetic and explosive combination of Hip Hop, Rock and Tough Street beats hitting everyday issues in today's society.

The Steels come from the North East of England and signed to Kingsway in June 2010. All in their

twenties, all having been on the road together for years, all with a shared passion for seeing their music help people establish deeper connections with God.

Their unmissable live sets have astounded music lovers at major festivals all over the world; more recently performing on BBC's 'Songs of Praise' and the ‘God Channel's’ 'GTV LIVE'. The audience have the time of their lives while hearing ‘The Steels’ blend of guitar driven rock, which delivers the message of Jesus in a new and refreshing style.


Superhero are Scotlands' hardest working Christian rock band, lead singer Tim says:

"We believe this is what God wants us to do, and as long as we feel this way, and for as long as people continue to hear and respond to the Gospel through what we do, we will keep moving forward....oh! and we love the challenge, the way it stretches our faith and keeps us humble, because the way we do things, it can only ever be said that God did it for us". "All the glory to him, he is our constant."

Superhero also played in Inverness at the Luis Palau and are a favourite with live crowds, having played at festivals across the world

PhatfishPhatfish have made an impressive impact on the UK Christian music scene for the last decade. Live, they have led thousands in worship at all of the major UK festivals including Newday, Soul Survivor and Spring Harvest, sharing stages with artists that range from Matt Redman to Delirious. They have also toured in the US, Canada and Europe.

In the studio they have clocked up 10 widely acclaimed albums and are responsible for the worldwide hit ‘Holy Holy, Lift Up His Name’ and more recently the anthems ‘There Is A Day’ and ‘Amazing God’. They feature on numerous compilation albums, often in partnership with premier publishers, Kingsway Music.

Since their formation in 1994, Phatfish have held firmly to their original aim: to write, play and record songs that glorify our amazing God and communicate His love and His purpose for us. Select any Phatfish track and you’ll quickly notice that the lyrics are rich with sound biblical truths that lift the soul and strengthen faith. Listen with a trained ear and you can’t mistake the impeccable vocal quality and faultless musicianship that only comes with genuine commitment and experience.Their most recent release 'In Jesus' features the two newest additions to the band, guitarists Jos Wintermeyer and Ben Hall.
