PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT LOCAL AND NATIONAL LGBTQ+ CHARITIES INCLUDING
ENCIRCLE, TREVOR PROJECT, TEGAN AND SARA FOUNDATION & MORE

Salt Lake City, UT – April 2, 2018 – Dan Reynolds, lead singer of Imagine Dragons today
announced the second annual LOVELOUD Festival (http://loveloudfest.com) designed to
ignite the vital conversation about what it means to unconditionally love, understand,
accept, and support LGBTQ+ youth in our communities. The 2018 LOVELOUD Festival
will be powered by AT&T.

AT&T supports various initiatives that promote safety and inclusion for LGBTQ youth, including The Trevor Project’s suicide prevention and crisis intervention service. Together, through music and an inspiring message, LOVELOUD and AT&T can share our vision of a future where LGBTQ youth are connected to love and acceptance.

LGBTQ+ teen suicide, often caused by a lack of communication or an absence of
acceptance, is one of the most troubling issues in the community. The numbers are
staggering:
• Suicide is the second leading cause of death in the US for youth (teenagers) according to
the Center for Disease Control.
• LGBTQ+ youth that come from a home or community where they are not accepted are
eight times more likely to commit suicide.

“We at LOVELOUD are determined to help create a more loving and accepting environment for them, while also hoping to raise more than $1 million dollars for local and national LGBTQ+ charities” said founder and Imagine Dragons front-man Dan Reynolds. “We look forward to a day dedicated to celebrating their diversity while listening to great music and inspiring speakers.”

LOVELOUD Festival will take place Saturday, July 28, 2018 in Salt Lake City, UT at the
Eccles Stadium and feature performances by Grammy® Award-winning artists Imagine
Dragons, Zedd and Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda along with Grace Vanderwaal, Neon
Trees’ Tyler Glenn and A.W. Stand-up comedian, actor and writer Cameron Esposito will also perform and emcee the day’s festivities. More performers and speakers will be
announced in the coming weeks.

LOVELOUD tickets will go on sale Friday, April 6 at 10AM MST. Festival goers can
purchase tickets HERE. Doors open for the LOVELOUD Festival at 2pm and the music
begins at 3:30pm. The festival will feature food, beverages and a number of other
activities for fans of all ages and interests. The LOVELOUD Foundation will donate
proceeds from this year’s event to benefit LGBTQ+ organizations including Encircle, the Tegan and Sara Foundation and the Trevor Project.

“LOVELOUD’s inspiring goal is to raise $1 million dollars for LGBTQ+ organizations in
one day, and we know that this amazing program of music and speakers will entertain,
educate and inspire everyone who comes out in support on July 28th," said Tegan and Sara. “We started the Tegan and Sara Foundation to bring resources and attention to
issues affecting the LGBTQ community, and we are proud to work with the LOVELOUD
team to amplify their urgent message of acceptance and unconditional love.”

As part of this quest, Dan Reynold’s created a documentary centered around
LOVELOUD, called Believer. The film received runner up for the “Festival Favorite Award” at Sundance Film Festival 2018 and will premiere on HBO in June.

LOVELOUD’s inaugural festival bowed August 26, 2017 in Orem, UT at Brent Brown
Ballpark. The event drew 17,000 concertgoers and featured live music from Imagine
Dragons, Neon Trees, Krewella, Nicholas Petricca of Walk the Moon (Acoustic), Joshua
James, and Aja Volkman. In 2017, LOVELOUD Foundation lent its support to various
charities such as Encircle and Stand4Kind, as well as national charities, The Trevor
Project and GLAAD.

The LOVELOUD Foundation is a catalyst to bring communities and families together to
help ignite the vital conversation about what it means to unconditionally love our LGBTQ+youth. LOVELOUD offers hope to young people, letting them know they’re not alone and encouraging acceptance in the home and community. It all begins with talking about, sharing and showing the realities of what LGBTQ+ teens face daily. The LOVELOUD Foundation is a 501c3.

AT&T’s commitment to equality and inclusion for the LGBTQ community began in 1975,
when the company became one of the first American corporations to adopt a policy
prohibiting discrimination against employees based on sexual orientation. AT&T also has a long-standing commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace. LEAGUE at AT&T
(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies Employee Organizations of AT&T) is one of the oldest LGBTQ Employee Resource Groups (ERG) in the nation. In 1998, AT&T
adopted one of the first domestic partner benefits programs for LGBTQ employees. In
2006, AT&T was one of the first U.S. corporations to offer transgender-inclusive health
care benefits. At AT&T, diversity and inclusion will always be top priorities.

The night UMBC, Virginia and the impossible all collided

Written By | Ryan McGee

 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — On a bench outside Charlotte’s Spectrum Center, sometime past midnight as Friday night transitioned into Saturday morning, a man dressed head to toe in orange clothing, marked up and down with navy blue “VIRGINIA” sat, hands on his knees and face in those hands, while his identically dressed wife solemnly rubbed his back. His name was Bill Waggoner, he was from Richmond, and he wanted to be left the hell alone.

“Do you remember Chaminade?” he asked Mrs. Waggoner. “I’m too young to remember Chaminade. Call your father and ask him if this is what Chaminade felt like.”

All around the couple, people streamed in both directions. Most were leaving the arena, having just witnessed the moment no one thought they would ever witness in their lifetime, as 16th-seeded UMBC — University of Maryland Baltimore County, the Retrievers — pummeled the No. 1 team in the nation, Bill’s beloved Virginia Cavaliers 74-54. The people who weren’t streaming out were suddenly trying to find their way in, having hours earlier made the decision to skip the game and instead hit the bars and restaurants of uptown Charlotte. Most had attended the days earlier matchups, the sexier No. 8 vs. No. 9 between Creighton and Kansas State, the more fun showdown of Providence vs. Texas A&M and especially the hometown big ticket between North Carolina and Lipscomb.

Now, on the same streets where UVA-UMBC tickets had been going for $10 a pop two hours earlier, they were trying to force their way in, modern-day Woodstockers, hoping to claim that they’d been in attendance for the greatest upset in NCAA tournament history.

“You know what this is like?” CBS Sports analyst Bill Raftery stood and asked it to no one in particular as he threw down his headset courtside and turned to the media and audience members seated behind him, most with their jaws still hanging, unhinged, while the Retrievers in their 1990s YMCA league uniforms celebrated on the floor behind him. “This is like saying, well, you know, one day the aliens are going to land here and that’s going to be incredible. But in the back of your mind you’re like, ‘C’mon, man, we all know the aliens are never going to land here.'”

One day a 16-seed is going to beat a 1-seed. We all said it. But, c’mon, in the back of our minds we all knew it was never going to happen.

No, not when the 16s were 0-135 all time. Not when this 16 was arguably the weakest 16 in recent memory, having been pummeled only two months ago by Albany, 83-39.

83-39!

UMBC made the NCAA tournament by defeating Vermont in the America East title game via a buzzer-beater. Its first NCAA appearance in a decade came via the Retrievers’ first win over the Catamounts in 23 tries, snapping Vermont’s nation-leading 15-game winning streak.

No, not when the No. 1 wasn’t just a No. 1 seed, but the No. 1 overall seed, arguably the most ironclad No. 1 in years. Not when that No. 1 had nearly run the table in the ACC, regarded as the nation’s best conference, winning the regular season by four games and then running through that league’s conference tournament.

But UMBC — a team that Charlotte media members had to spend the dinner break between Friday game sessions looking up (“Is it UMBC or UBMC?”) — didn’t just beat the nation’s top-ranked team. It won in a rout. It won by 20. Throughout the second half it didn’t feel that close. The Cavaliers’ much-ballyhooed defense had surrendered only 53 points per game all season.

The Retrievers scored 53 points in the second half.

“I’ve been watching and coaching in NCAA tournament games my whole life, and I’ve heard it just like we all have, that a 16 will never defeat a top seed,” UMBC’s second-year head coach Ryan Odom said breathlessly as he moved through an unexpected gantlet of postgame media sessions.

Longtime college hoops fans should recognize his surname. His father, Dave, was at the end of the bench as head coach at South Carolina, East Carolina and, most famously, when he lured a long, lanky swimmer from the Virgin Islands to play basketball at Wake Forest. The kid’s name was Tim Duncan.

“I think if you’ve really paid attention, then you know there have been times when it’s been close,” Odom said. “So, yeah, it was bound to happen sometime. It turns out tonight was that sometime.”

“Coach told us when we got to Charlotte, we had a chance to make history,” said Retrievers swingman Joe Sherburne, who just last week was named the school’s first academic All-American. “He told us about growing up in Charlottesville, and about that other time Virginia lost when they were No. 1.”

That would be the game that poor weeping Bill on the Charlotte street bench was asking his wife about. It was the eve of Christmas Eve 1982, when top-ranked UVA, led by all-time great Ralph Sampson, traveled to Hawaii for a pre-ACC holiday tournament and were stunned by Chaminade, an 800-student hometown school.

In the days leading up to Virginia’s trip into the Pacific, the Cavaliers practiced under the watchful eye of a 7-year-old kid, there to hang out with his father, a Virginia assistant coach. The coach’s name was Dave Odom. The kid’s name was Ryan.

Chaminade’s 77-72 toppling of Virginia was arguably the biggest upset in college hoops history. Until Friday night.

“All these years later, so many people claim to have been there for that game and dad has always said, yeah, none of them were actually there,” Odom recalled, laughing. “I suspect there will be a lot of people at work on Monday who will say they were here tonight, but they weren’t actually here.”

They tried. Nearly an hour after the final buzzer had sounded, they were still trying. Several who were turned away at the door cornered a ticket scalper, offering to buy up any of his unused tickets.

“Here,” damp-eyed Bill in the Virginia gear said to a family wearing black and gold Retrievers gear as he and his wife finally stood to walk away. “Take mine. Frame it. I don’t care. I don’t need any damn souvenirs from tonight.”

2018 Monster Energy Supercross Championship Races into Atlanta March 3, 2018

The most competitive off-road motorcycle racing championship in the
world coming to Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the first time

ATLANTA – Tickets for the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross event at the brand-new, world-class Mercedes-Benz Stadium are on sale now. The 2018 season will be the most exciting and entertaining of all-time as a new era of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, will change the battleground forever with a revised points system, the addition of three Triple Crown Monster Energy Cup-style events, two East/West 250SX Shootouts, four Supercross Amateur racing events and the elimination of semi races in qualifying for the Main Event.

As the most competitive and highest-profile motorcycle racing championship in the world, Monster Energy Supercross has entertained millions of fans for 43 years inside the most recognizable and prestigious stadiums in North America. Without a past champion potentially on the gate in 2018, the international field is wide open for the world’s most elite athletes to become a first-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion.

WHEN: Saturday, March 3, 2018
Gates/Pit Party open at noon
Opening Ceremonies at 6:30 PM
Racing starts at 7 PM

WHERE: Mercedes-Benz Stadium
1 AMB Drive NW
Atlanta, GA 30313

Tickets are on sale now and available for purchase online at Ticketmaster.com,
all Ticketmaster retail outlets or charge by phone at 800-745- 3000.

For the first time in over two decades, the 2018 season will debut an all-new points system to evenly allocate points over all 22 finishing positions. While the gap between 1st, 2nd and 3rd has not changed, the new points system will ensure that the race to the championship will be much more competitive throughout the season as the reward is greater for a better finish.

The elimination of semi races will add further pressure to qualify as the world’s most elite endurance athletes will have just two chances to ensure a spot in the Main Event through one of two heat races or a last chance qualifier (LCQ). This year, the Top 9 in each heat will qualify directly into the Main Event while positions 10-20 will have one last chance to make it through the LCQ. Previously, only five positions would transfer to the Main Event from the heat races and all others would be transferred to a semi race. Eliminating the semi races will make for longer heat races and last chance qualifiers, allowing for more intense battles on the track for the fans.

Atlanta hosted the first round of Monster Energy Supercross during the 1993 season inside what was the largest domed structure in the world, the Georgia Dome, eventually resulting in the city becoming the routine home of the sport in the Southeast. The new season will bring thousands of fans to the edge of their seats in an epic battle of premier off-road motorcycle racing, marking the first time Monster Energy Supercross performs at Atlanta’s brand new, jaw-dropping sport and entertainment facility, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, its ninth stop of the 17-race championship. The Atlanta race is the second city in the inaugural three-city showdown, Triple Crown, where both the 250SX and 450SX Classes will compete. Qualifying races will reduce the field to the top 22 riders in each class, and the 250SX Class will compete in 6-, 10- and 12-minute Main Events, while the
450SX Class will compete in 8-, 12- and 15-minute Main Events. An Olympic-style scoring
method determines an overall winner in each class from all three Main Events, where the lowest combined score will be awarded the overall win.

At each event, fans are treated to unprecedented access to the sport’s multimillion-dollar athletes, their teams and sponsors while getting a behind-the- scenes look at the daylong, pre-race Pit Party at the Georgia World Congress Center, which opens Saturday afternoon at noon and costs $20 at the gate. Or get FREE access by simply recycling an empty can of Monster Energy. Restrictions and additional charges may apply.

In addition, the action-packed weekend will feature Amateur Supercross on Sunday, March 4 at noon when the fastest amateur competitors in 27 classes will have a once-in- a-lifetime opportunity to ride on the Mercedes-Benz track, the same one as their professional counterparts.
