Long Beach Gospel Fest

The Fifth Annual Long Beach Gospel Fest, founded by Pastor Wayne Chaney, Jr. and wife Myesha of the Antioch Church of Long Beach, announced this year’s star-studded lineup for the highly anticipated citywide worship event. Showcasing some of the best gospel artists in music today, this year’s lineup will include multi-award winning performers: Tasha Cobbs, Deitrick Haddon, Kierra Sheard, Jonathan Nelson, Myron Butler, Jessica Reedy, Brian Courtney Wilson and more. The free, open-to-the-public event takes place on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at Marina Green Park.

“My wife and I along with our Antioch Church Family wanted to bring life, hope and inspiration to this region on a massive scale. We also wanted to create a home for Gospel on the West Coast; a gathering place to host both world class artists and emerging talent,” said Pastor Chaney.

Tasha Cobbs, one of this year’s featured artists, said this of the festival: “TCM (Tasha Cobbs Ministries) is so excited to be a part of this year’s Long Beach Gospel Fest! Being such a highly anticipated event, I am looking forward to further extending my music and ministry to this vast audience. It’s extremely timely for me since I recently released my new single, ‘Jesus Saves,’ which I can’t wait to share with everyone there in Long Beach in July.”

Inspiring fans on the shores of Long Beach since its inception in 2009, the successful annual event is one of the city’s premier summer festivals. Anticipating more than 20,000 attendees, the Festival experience includes a monumental morning worship service led by Pastor Chaney, followed by the afternoon concert with gospel’s top performers.

“Our vision wasn’t to simply to throw another fest but to host a true worship encounter and celebration that would honor God and forever alter the climate of or region for good,” said Pastor Chaney.
