Yippee!!! The Experience for the year 2011 is just some few days away. I’ll definitely be there. You might ask why? The Experience was convened and hosted by Pastor Paul Adefarasin. The Experience is an Interdenominational Gospel concert that features some of the best-known musical talents of our time.
The Event, which debuted in December 2006 with over 70,000 persons in attendance rapidly gained momentum at its second outing with a quantum leap in attendance of well over 250,000 people. The Experience has now become known as the largest musical concert in Africa.
In previous editions the Experience has run through the night starting at 7.00pm and running till 6am the following morning; a colossal 11 hours of uninterrupted prayer and live music!
At its inception, the Experience was simply an opportunity for Nigerians to put aside tribe, tongue, class, and creed; come together and lift one voice and worship God. The event is seen as a bridge of reconciliation, and a beacon of light and hope to the much afflicted and often maligned continent of Africa. Attended by Federal and State dignitaries, Captains of Industry and your regular man or woman next door, The Experience was truly representative of a cross section of Nigeria’s eclectic community.
This year’s event takes a different format from previous editions and will hold as a command performance from 5pm to 1am at a different venue; the Expo Center, Eko Hotel, Lagos. A ticket will be required for attendance but these tickets are free. Some of the artistes that will minister at the Experience this year are: Don Moen, Chevelle Franklyn, Micah Stampley and Kirk Franklin.
How does one get to attend the Experience this year 2011?
You attend by redeeming a code for a free ticket. A ticket grants you admission in to the venue.
