Chester Bennington’s Widow Is Planning The “320 Festival”

December 22, 2019

Former Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington’s widow, Talinda Bennington, recently announced a new festival set to launch in 2020 as part of an expansion of her 320 Changes Direction initiative.

The inaugural 320 Festival will take place in L.A. on May 9 at Live in Los Angeles, with the main goal being to raise awareness of the importance of mental health.

A statement on the 320 Festival website says, “Together we have the power to help those suffering in silence. We are the ones to recognize that our mental health is as important as physical health. We must take action, we are the change.”

The one-day event will be comprised of three parts – a community festival, a mental health summit and a benefit concert. Musicians and comedians will be booked for the concert portion – with the line up being announced March 9, 2020.

Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman will join Malinda Bennington at the 320 event, answering questions from press and moderating a panel that discusses mental health and addiction within colleges.

100% of 320 Festival’s net proceeds will be donated to Give An Hour and the event’s non profit partners!

Which bands should they try to secure for the first 320 Festival?
