HeartSupport Fest 2023

FEBRUARY 18-19, 2023


This two-day festival is a meeting ground for bands, fans and mental health advocates to stop the stigma around mental health challenges.

Shout at your demons from the Central Florida Fairgrounds while surrounded by friends, fellow rock fans and proud mental health warriors. August Burns Red’s Jake Luhrs founded HeartSupport in 2006 as a way to encourage people to live with a purpose. The organization has grown significantly since its founding, and this year, at the first ever HeartSupport Festival, Luhrs will bring all that love and support to the big stage.   

“Several years ago, I had the massive dream of creating an actual music festival to unite bands and fans together, to elevate mental health and spread awareness and that is actually happening,” said Luhrs.

HeartSupport will offer a lineup of food vendors, drinks and legendary rock and metalcore artists performing over the span of two days. Rise Against, Silverstein, Hawthorne Heights and Underoath are just a few of the bands that will take the stage. Come as you are to this all ages event and be ready to dance, scream and forget your worries at the door.
