    A news post on linkinpark.com tells us that Linkin Park will be performing a headlining slot at a brand-new event called the mtvU Fandom Awards, which will take place as part of the 2014 Comic-Con convention at Petco Park in San Diego on July 24. Additionally, the band will also be playing a "corresponding" event called the MTV Fan Fest, which will take place at the same location.

    Anyone attending the convention can gain free admission to the MTV Fan Fest show and, apparently, the Fandom Awards as well, while attendees for the Fandom Awards event can be chosen through a competition called "MTV's Ultimate Fan Experience", which gives participants "a once in a lifetime VIP trip for two tickets to fly to San Diego and attend the mtvU Fandom Awards, meet the band and have VIP access to watch Linkin Park perform", among other things. No details on how to enter the competition have been revealed as of yet.

    On July 27, three days after the event, MTV will be airing a special covering the mtvU Fandom Awards, which will feature footage from Linkin Park's performance.

    The Hollywood Reporter has an article about the event which provides us with more details about what will be happening:

    Never even heard of that event but it will be cool to see what the band plays and if they pull a full set or a shortened one :)

    EDIT: My reading skills were off. Just realized the OP said "Brand New Event" so that's why I've never heard of it :p

    Yeah, there's actually been no information about any other performers. Makes me wonder if it's actually a festival-type thing at all or if LP's doing the only musical performance or something. But the announcement is relatively fresh, I think, so we can probably expect more details later on.
