Lightning, strong winds and blinding downpours interrupting festival shows is not something Destination 7 front woman Natasha Ponticelli is used to.
Ponticelli said she forced her bandmates to jump in their van and make their way to the safety of the college, which is located near the Ichthus festival grounds.
Ponticelli said she and the other five men from Los Angeles-based Destination 7 were supposed to help with tonight’s worship service, but as of 6:45 p.m. were still making the decision whether to brave the weather and come back.
“It was a really awesome moment of worship and then it got crazy,” she said. “We’re going to keep praying that the festival can keep moving forward.”
As of 7:30 p.m., the rain is still coming down, accompanied by flashes of lightning.
