The 2nd Annual LoveLoud Festival will take place on July 28, 2018, at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah. With an ambitious lineup that includes Imagine Dragons, Zedd, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, Grace VanderWaal and more, the festival not only aims to provide quality, live entertainment but also to raise more than 1 million dollars for local and national LGBTQ+ charities.
Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds created LoveLoud last year to spark conversations about “what it means to unconditionally love, understand, accept, and support LGBTQ+ youth in an effort to keep families together.” Now in its second year, Reynolds says the festival will be “a day dedicated to celebrating diversity while listening to great music and inspiring speakers.”
Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community including Encircle, an LGBTQ family and youth resource center; The Trevor Project, an organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services; and the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which fights for economic justice, health and representation for LGBTQ girls and women.
