Does anyone have any information about upcoming Chess 960 tournaments at the top level (i.e. GMs and IMs)? Even links to/information about past, major tournaments would be appreciated. I recently learned about Chess 960, and find it quite fascinating. I am also of the opinion that it would be more interesting to follow/study than regular chess early on in the game (since opening theory in regular chess goes as far as 25-30 moves in some openings), and beautiful novelties such as Aronian-Anand, 2013 can be prepared at home.
Chess960 news from the US CHess federation website. Talks of past and current events.
Here is information about a past international FiNet Chess 960 open which was won by Alexander Grischuk of Russia.

Nakamura simply won the first three games to become new World Champion – in a very convincing manner. Link also has games information and pictures as well. This is his website which has the blog and twitter account which can hopefully guide you to what events he participated in the past as well as plans to.
