While every Friday feels like a holiday, today is sweeter than most. This evening marks the start of the inaugural 320 Festival. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will premier online in hope to raise the importance of mental health awareness. The event will highlight several resources available to locals and likely serve as a platform to chat about all things mental health. In the end, all proceeds will be donated to 320 Festival’s nonprofit partners. The partners include, but not limited to, #HalfTheStory, Active Minds, AIM, Attitudes In Reverse, Buddy Project, and Gibson Gives. These notable organizations will celebrate music’s top artists alongside the festival’s loyal fans.
