Since being inspired to bring attention to and ignite conversation about LGBTQ+ issues back in 2017, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons’ LOVELOUD Festival has been wildly successful, both as a musical event and in raising the social consciousness about what it means to love one another unconditionally.
This year’s LOVELOUD Festival, happening in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 29th, brings a whole new slate of diverse acts that are all doing their part to #TurnUpTheLove including Kesha, Tegan & Sara, K. Flay, Laura Jane Grace, and of course Reynolds himself, among several others.
And once again, a portion of proceeds from the festival are going to several charities and organizations going to bat for LGBTQ+ issues including The Trevor Project, Encircle, Tegan & Sara Foundation, GLAAD, and over twenty others.
And while you wait for June 29th to roll around so you can catch the LOVELOUD Festival Live on DIRECTV or Twitter, you can visit TurnUptheLove.com to view even more features and videos celebrating LOVELOUD, The Trevor Project, 2019 Pride Festivities and more, including the Young Heroes series featuring Reynolds teaming up with YouTube star Miles McKenna to spotlight how LGBTQ+ youth are making a difference in their own communities, with the first episode available right now.
