    Not Just a Music Festival, It's #LIVIN.

    The LIVIN Foundation’s mission is to prevent suicide by creating quality connections through everyday conversations about mental health, by way of programs and partnerships. The Annual LIVIN Music Festival directly benefits the LIVIN Foundation. It’s a weekend event where community comes together to enjoy life. Camping, music, BBQ, Corn hole, kid’s activities, beverages and more! Not just a music festival – it’s #LIVIN!


    We want #LIVIN to be a universally recognized movement that promotes a world that is just as
    comfortable talking about mental health as it is the weather.

    Start the Conversation, Listen with Intent, Get Busy #LIVIN
