The GiG Festival is meant to sponsor and promote Christian musicians. The hope is to revitalize those who attend, giving them the courage to speak about their Christian Faith. To this end, the festival will offer space and a youthful atmosphere for Christian pilgrims to gather together. The GiG Festival should emphasize optimism and Christian hope through a contemporary and Christian youth culture.

The GiG-Festival (God is Good) shall deliver the Christian Faith in an easy to understand youth-language.

The main parts of this are music and community. Through a christian youth-culture, the young adults and families experience strengthening and affirmation: God wants and loves them even more than their parents do!
