About Harvest and Greg Laurie
What is SoCal Harvest?
SoCal Harvest was a free, three-night event at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California on August 26–28, 2016. In its 27th year, the event featured performances from Chris Tomlin, tobyMac, Skillet, for King & Country, Hollyn, Phil Wickham, KB, and other special guests, plus a gospel message by Greg Laurie.
