Last yearâ€™s event brought 23,000 fans with this yearâ€™s numbers expected to surpass 27,000. â€œYebotv.com was inspired by Father Bob Stecâ€™s passion for delivering his message through technology and music. It was obvious to us that our method of communicating is similar and that we had the ability to deliver his message not only to his large following, but to the world.â€
“I am excited to forge a new path for Christianity utilizing the Internet. Our partnership with Yebotv will enable us to reach millions of people all over the world. It is a great way for us all to reach out and spread a message of good news and hope globally.â€ Father Bob

Real Music is Music with Meaning. â€œOver the past four years we have searched our region for the best upcoming Christian musicians.â€ Real Music has all styles of music, but brings a different message â€“ a much needed message â€“ a message of hope and peace, a message of faith and prayer, a message that we are one.â€
We have partnered with Yebotv.com to give all Christian musicians, across the world, an opportunity to share their music and their message. We look forward to working with Yebotv.com to search out the best of the best across the world and bring those groups/artists to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the finals. â€œIt is an opportunity to create a venue or portal for upcoming artists to share their God given gifts and talents of music and song to bring a different message, a hopeful message to our world.â€ Father Bob
This yearâ€™s theme for The FEST is ONEâ€”celebrating the cultural diversity within the region showcasing the many different ethnic groups being represented at the event.
