SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's Loveloud Festival, a music festival benefitting LGBTQ youth and organized by Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds, will be back in 2022 after a three-year hiatus.

The festival will return to Salt Lake City in May 2022, the Loveloud Foundation confirmed Wednesday on Twitter. The group didn't offer any other details about the festival but encouraged followers to stay tuned.

The last Loveloud Festival took place in 2019 at the USANA Amphitheater, featuring Kesha, Tegan and Sara, and Reynolds. In 2018, the festival was held at Rice-Eccles Stadium, and in 2017 the inaugural festival took place on the Utah Valley University campus.

Before the 2019 festival, Reynolds told the Deseret News he wanted the event to continue to get bigger and bigger.

"This is really the first year that we've gotten the chance to diversify," Reynolds said. "We obviously want LoveLoud to be as big as possible. We want the LGBTQ youth to feel special and celebrated. But on top of that, we also want this to be a really diverse lineup, and to have a lot of visibility, and a lot of LGBTQ representation."
