The K-LOVE Fan Awards weekend kicked off yesterday with a star studded concert featuring For King & Country, Tenth Avenue North, Rend Collective, NEEDTOBREATHE, and Switchfoot.
BreatheCast covered the Pepsi sponsored event in which hundreds were in attendance. Switchfoot headlined the night's concerts as people from all ages stuck it out to see the band.
