For the first time ever, the LoveLoud Festival will go beyond Utah’s borders with a plan to, as its tagline says, “Unite the world through music.”
Earlier this month, the LoveLoud Foundation announced that the festival — which celebrates LGBTQ+ youth — would return to Utah in November, and for the first time go on the road, with shows in Washington, D.C., and Austin, Texas.
The foundation updated that announcement Wednesday, setting dates for the two shows outside Utah. The tour will start in Washington, at The Anthem, on Oct. 17. Then, after the Nov. 3 show at Salt Lake City’s Delta Center, the tour will finish Nov. 10 in Austin, at a venue yet to be announced.
Line-ups for the Washington and Austin shows have not yet been announced.
Wednesday’s announcement did mention some of the acts set to perform at the Delta Center. The headliner (announced during the Utah Pride Parade this month) is scheduled to be the pop artist Lauv. Supporting acts include the rock band Mother Mother and the Canadian indie pop duo (and LoveLoud alumnae) Tegan and Sara. Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees and Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons — the man who started the festival back in 2017 — are also scheduled to make appearances. More acts are expected to be announced.
Tickets for the Salt Lake City show are available at loveloudfest.com.
