Louder Than Life — which claims to be The World’s Largest Rock ‘N’ Roll Whiskey Festival — has announced it’s return to Louisville, Kentucky for the fifth straight year, delivering its most impressive lineup to date.
The festival boasts headliners Slipknot, Disturbed, and Guns N’ Roses (making their first appearance since performing in Hawaii back in December of 2018. Additionally, the festival is bringing out Godsmack, Rob Zombie, Staind (their first performance in 5 years), A Day to Remember, Ice Cube, Breaking Benjamin, and many more.
Louder than Life will take place at its new home at Highland Festival Grounds at KY Expo Center on Friday, September 27, Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29. There will be more than 50 music acts, with performances on three stages, along with award-winning bourbons, whiskey, spirits, craft beer, and the best food Louisville has to offer
“We wouldn’t be living up to the name Louder Than Life if we didn’t come back bigger and badder than ever, giving fans something they can’t see anywhere else,” says festival producer Danny Wimmer. “Getting Staind back together and plugged in on the main stage is something that I’ve been working on for years. These are songs that need to be heard, that fans have been dying to hear — Staind has been one of the most requested bands on our socials, and it’s an honor to be bringing their music back for the fans at Louder Than Life.”
Wimmer continues, “Slipknot has always had some of the most loyal, rabid fans in rock, but now they are at that pivotal moment when they’ve crossed over into iconic status; Disturbed has had their best touring numbers to date this year; then top it off with one of the biggest rock bands of all time in Guns N’ Roses…this year is our most massive lineup yet.”
Louder Than Life exclusive VIP packages, General Admission tickets, camping and hotel packages all are on sale now.
