There was a time at Ichthus when the Main Stage headliner would finish, and a speaker from the stage would send everyone back to the camp site, often mentioning a lights out time.
Now, they say stick around for the late night program. And oh, there are bands going until the wee hours on many side stages.
Friday night, a crowd stretched out across the lawn in front of the Deep End Stage for an 11 p.m. performance by The Devil Wears Prada that actually started around 11:45. When the show got started, lead vocalist Mike Hranica wasted no time whipping the crowd into a moshing frenzy.
Back on the Main Stage, the White Collar Sideshow delivered its theatrical take on addiction and redemption.
And the festival doesn’t actually end until Sunday morning, with the Doorpost Project Film Festival winners on the main stage and bands such as Anberlin and The Showdown playing after midnight.
