This coming Saturday, May 9, was to be the date of the 320 Festival, curated by Kevin Lyman of the Vans Warped Tour and Talinda Bennington, widow of late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. In the works for months, it was originally intended to advance the conversation about mental health through face-to-face meetings with non-profit organizations, live musical performances and more, though the COVID-19 pandemic has since forced the festival to become an online experience.

Update: The performance schedule for the weekend can be seen below.

The new version of the 320 Festival will begin on Friday, May 8, with programming running all through the weekend into Sunday, May 10. It will still feature performances, Q&A sessions, panels and more, all geared around helping continue and further the discussions regarding mental health and providing help to those who need it the most.

It will all be made available to stream via a few different platforms all weekend long:

In partnership with KNEKT.TV, people from all around the world can tune in on Facebook Live, YouTube Live, and the KNEKT.TV Network on Roku and Apple TV. The virtual event is free and open for all to join and participate. RSVPs for the 320 Festival are now open at

The list of participating individuals, entertainers and musicians is rather deep, and includes Chris Martin of Coldplay, Kiiara, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and many more (including Holy Wars, a Los Angeles duo profiled here in early 2019). Via a news release:
