After revealing the 320 Project, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman and 320 Changes Direction founder Talinda Bennington, who was married to the late Chester Bennington, are announcing the first-ever 320 Fest.
The event, taking place on May 9 at L.A. Live, is bringing awareness to the importance of our mental health with a free community music and film festival, mental health summit and more.
Last month, the pair revealed the 320 mental health summit taking place today (March 9).
The non-profit is kicking off with 320 Conversations, a roundtable discussion with actor/comic Ken Jeong hosting and Lyman moderating. Panel participants include Blue October frontman Justin Furstenfeld (who will also be performing), Morgan Freed (co-founder/director of Emo Nite LA), Tiffany Jenkins (Juggling The Jenkins), Jason Docton (CEO of Rise Above The Disorder) and Erin Raffery Ryan, executive director of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Alliance On Mental Illness.
