Chester Bennington's widow reveals plans for inaugural 320 Festival

Chester Bennington's widow, Talinda Bennington, has revealed plans for an inaugural 320 Festival.

Talinda, who was married to the former Linkin Park frontman who sadly took his life in 2017 after battling severe depression, has announced a one-day festival next year as part of her 320 Changes Direction initiative.

It's been confirmed that the event will be staged in Los Angeles in May to raise awareness of mental health issues and support for people who are currently dealing with mental health concerns, as well as advice to friends and family of those coping with any mental health issues.

Meanwhile, earlier this month it was revealed that Bennington's old band, Grey Daze, are releasing an album in honor of the late rocker. Before the 41-year-old became the frontman of Linkin Park in 1996, he was in the grunge band. The singer's son Jaime has joined forces with the rest of the band members to release unheard tracks.

Talinda previously tweeted: "One of Chester's greatest gifts was music.

"The only thing he took more pride in was being a father to his children.

"Given how much he cared, he wanted fans to hear everything he did, and his musical journey started with Grey Daze."
