The LoveLoud Festival took place on July 28 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and for the second consecutive year, it broke audience records, and it raised in excess of one million dollars for the LGBTQ community, in an effort to spread love and acceptance. It raised money for the following charitable organizations: The Trevor Project, Encircle, and the Tegan and Sara Foundation.
This year's performers included Imagine Dragons, Zedd and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda, Grace Vanderwaal, Neon Trees' Tyler Glenn and A.W. Comedian Cameron Esposito served as emcee of the festivities.
Thanks to modern technology and social media, the LoveLoud Festival was streamed live on the AT&T Twitter page for those that were unable to make it to Utah.
