Louder Than Life, the World’s Largest Rock ‘N’ Roll Whiskey Festival, returns to Louisville, KY even bigger and better in its fifth year, with festival producers delivering the most spectacular music lineup since the festival began in 2014. Louder Than Life will feature the Danny Wimmer Presents debut of quintessential rock band GUNS N' ROSES (in their first appearance since performing in Hawaii in December 2018), the return of chart-topping, festival favorites SLIPKNOT and DISTURBED, a reunited STAIND (in their first public performance in 5 years), GODSMACK, ROB ZOMBIE, A DAY TO REMEMBER, ICE CUBE, MARILYN MANSON, BREAKING BENJAMIN, CHEVELLE, HALESTORM, and many more.

Produced by premier independent festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents, Louder Than Life will be held at its new home at Highland Festival Grounds at KY Expo Center on Friday, September 27, Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29.

Louder Than Life will feature 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. Festival attendees will also enjoy a variety of onsite food and beverage experiences, as well as sponsor activations that celebrate the bourbon culture and culinary heritage of this unique American city.

"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."
