The one-year anniversary of the passing of Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington came on July 20. Fans across the world put together memorial tributes and events to honor his memory and further the conversation about mental health — which is crucial, and a good way to help those who may be suffering in their own ways.
On October 21, another fan-sponsored tribute event will take place in Los Angeles. Put on by Raising From the Ashes, a nonprofit organization seeking to “benefit Mental Health Awareness and providing resources for those struggling and their families.”
A fundraising campaign is currently up and running, with an $11,000 goal to help cover the production cost of screening Road to Revolution: Live at Milton Keynes and the permitting cost for the park for up to 3,000 capacity. We are currently working on further efforts to also help with these expenses for the festival.

The One More Light Festival is for Linkin Park fans to come together for a great cause! As LP fans, we are looking forward to an epic day of fun, games, food, prizes and (HOPEFULLY) the screening of Road to Revolution: Live at Milton Keynes! And we love that this will enable us to not only bring everyone together, but also raise money for the One More Light Fund.
A Picnic Style Screening of Road to Revolution: Live at Milton Keynes! (it’s not the real thing, but with quality surround sound and an enormous screen, it’ll be hard not to cheer and sing along). Sponsored by Ultimate Outdoor Movies.
There will be vendors, food, tattoos, mental health advocacy/information and much more.
If you’re a fan, are local, or just want to help contribute to the cause, feel free — this should be a fantastic way for Linkin Park fans to come together and celebrate Bennington and further the cause of mental health awareness.
