Rise Against, Parkway Drive, The Ghost Inside, Dance Gavin Dance, Etc. Announced For First-Ever ‘HeartSupport Fest’


Jake Luhrs, singer of Lancaster, PA metalcore outfit August Burns Red, has announced the first-ever ‘HeartSupport Fest‘. That event will be raising funds and awareness for his non-profit organization, HeartSupport. The two-day festival will be held at the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando, FL on February 18th and 19th.

Luhrs commented:

“Our mission with HeartSupport Fest is not to recreate the festival experience, but to bring the self-care and self-love conversation to the forefront of the festival community by creating a space that promotes active dialogue around challenges that we all face, as musicians, fans, and everything in between.

I’m beyond excited to announce we will be hosting a music festival to benefit HeartSupport and the community! Having the opportunity to host a mission-based music festival with some of my favorite fellow musicians is an absolute dream come true. Our goal with HeartSupport fest is to create a high-energy festival experience that highlights our core values of diversity, acceptance, inclusion, self-love and self-care, and mental health as priority.”

Rise Against
Parkway Drive
The Ghost Inside
