A mutual love of music is great way to foster love, understanding and acceptance.
That’s how Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds wants to support the LGBTQ community with the upcoming LOVELOUD music festival.
Reynolds visited the ABC4 Utah studios Wednesday to talk about what inspired him to create the event.
The concert is August 26 at Brent Brown Ballpark in Orem at 5:30 p.m. The purpose of the concert is to “encourage greater love, communication and understanding of our LGBTQ community.”
Attendees will experience live music from Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, Krewella, Nicholas Petricca of Walk The Moon and more.
All proceeds go to the LOVELOUD Foundation which supports The Trevor Project, Encircle, GLAAD and STAND4KIND.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement of support regarding the festival.
