Headlining this year’s festival are international music sensations Nico & Vinz who will perform their smash hit “Am I Wrong” along with other chart toppers that joyfully speak of life, love, and identity.

Every day, 600 children become newly infected with HIV. EGPAF is committed to getting that number to zero through its lifesaving work to treat and prevent pediatric HIV around the world. Since 1989, A Time For Heroes has raised more than $35 million to support EGPAF’s commitment to creating a world where no child has AIDS.
