Imagine Dragons and Zedd will perform at this year's LoveLoud Festival. Other performers include Grace VanderWaal and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda among others.
The LoveLoud Festival was first launched last year in support of the LGBTQ community. The proceeds from the festival will be donated to various LGBTQ+ charities like the Trevor Project, Encircle, and the Tegan and Sara Foundation.
This year's show will take place on July 28 at the Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake, City, Utah. Tickets will go on sale starting April 6 at 10 a.m. Cameron Esposito will host the LoveLoud Festival.
Dan Reynolds Releases Statement
Dan Reynolds, the frontman of Imagine Dragons, released a statement regarding the band's involvement at the festival.
"We at LoveLoud are determined to help create a more loving and accepting environment for them, while also hoping to raise more than $1 million for local and national LGBTQ+ charities. We look forward to a day dedicated to celebrating their diversity while listening to great music and inspiring speakers," said Reynolds.
Reynolds is an American singer, songwriter, musician, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He serves as the lead vocalist of Imagine Dragons. Reynolds also teamed up with Aja Volkman in 2011 for their Egyptian EP.
The LoveLoud Festival is expected to feature more singers, and they will be revealed in the weeks leading up to the show. Last year, the festival welcomed 17,000 guests who got to watch Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, Krewella and Walk the Moon.

This year's show's goal is to raise $1 million for the three organizations aimed at helping the LGBTQ communities, specifically the youth.
Tegan and Sara also released a statement regarding the festival, as well as their foundation.
"We know that this amazing program of music and speakers will entertain, educate, and inspire everyone who comes out in support on July 28th. We started the Tegan and Sara Foundation to bring resources and attention to issues affecting the LGBTQ community, and we are proud to work with the LoveLoud team to amplify their urgent message of acceptance and unconditional love," said the duo.
As of yet, it is still unclear what songs the confirmed artists will perform at the festival in July.
