All Time Low, Fitz And The Tantrums, IAN SWEET To Headline Sound Mind Mental Health Festival

Mark your calendars. Sound Mind’s annual Mental Health Festival is set to make its return on May 20th at California’s Ventura County Fairgrounds.

As part of the Ventura County Fairgrounds’ “Concerts in Your Car” series, the festival will be a socially distanced drive-in experience. The lineup includes All Time Low, Fitz and The Tantrums, IAN SWEET, Delta Spirit’s Matthew Logan Vasquez, Lovelytheband, Charlotte Lawrence, and more.

Along with the music, organizations including the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and The JED Foundation will provide resources, support programs, and tips on self-care for attendees.

“The collective trauma the world has experienced due to the pandemic has awoken us to our shared humanity along the spectrum of mental health,” said Sound Mind Live Executive Director Chris Bullard. “As the physical threats of the pandemic begin to wane, now it is more important than ever to foster empathy and open dialogue around mental health so we can heal without battling stigma or a lack of knowledge on these issues.”

Tickets are on sale now.

For those unable to attend in person, the event will be livestreamed on Consequence’s YouTube and Facebook pages.
