Chester Bennington‘s family and closest friends gathered for a private funeral near his home in Palos Verdes, CA.
A couple hundred people attended the service Saturday afternoon at South Coast Botanic Garden — many of the guests were musicians who’d played or toured with Chester and Linkin Park. A full stage, including a drum kit, was set up for musical tributes to be performed.
Police provided tight security at the event. As TMZ first reported … the family opted for a private funeral, instead of a massive open service.
Fittingly, all funeral attendees had to have wrist bands and an access pass — similar to most concert VIP passes.
Chester was 41. #RIP
