(Radio.com) This weekend (Aug. 26), LoveLoud, a new music festival conceived by Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds, debuts at Orem, Utah's Brent Brown Ballpark.

Designed to celebrate LGBTQ people and culture in the heavily Mormon state, the inaugural edition of LoveLoud will feature Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, Krewella, Nicholas Petricca of Walk The Moon, Joshua James and Reynold's wife, Aja Volkman.

"More than the event itself is the conversation about it, "Reynolds (who was raised in a Mormon household) said to Vanity Fair. "Parents and kids sitting around the dinner table and the kids say, 'Hey, mom, I want to go to this festival.' And the parents say, 'Hey, let's talk about what that is and what that means.'"

"It felt like a lot of unnecessary guilt looking back on it," Reynolds said regarding his past experience with the church. "That already opened up my heart to people who are feeling guilty [because] of religion. To times that by a million is to be an L.G.B.T.Q. child in a home who's told that their most basic instinct or sense of being is wrong or flawed or sinful." Read more here.
