Hills Alive continues for second day

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Thousands gathered to see ten artists today such as Blanca and Crowder. The festival expects more than 20,000 people to pass through this weekend.

The Christian music festival is one of the biggest to come to Rapid City, welcoming almost twenty thousand people from all over.

It is a completely free festival and concert goers could enjoy food, fun in the sun, and a community of people coming together and lifting each other up.

"The energy is fantastic and upbeat. The heat is hot but the energy is as well. It is so up lifting and spiritually upholding,” said Robert Dyczek, a festival volunteer.
