There is something for everyone within this gathering: powerful praise and worship with Hillsong United, Hillsong Worship and Hillsong Young & Free, life-defining key-speaker messages, 100+ Co-Labs, creative presentations, Midnight Massive – plus so much more. It is a powerful three nights and two days that you do not want to miss!
