As a music journalist, there’s nothing more depressing than the summer coming to an end and all the music festivals that go with it. Luckily, following up the 2015 sellout, Louder Than Life is returning to Champion Park near downtown Louisville, KY on October 1-2 for its third annual running and it’s only getting bigger. The destination music festival packed with an astonishing 35+ bands spanning three stages is a celebration of the region’s culture and cuisine featuring award-winning bourbons and spirits, Gourmet Man Food, craft beer all set to the sounds of some of the world’s biggest rock bands.
The festival is made possible by Danny Wimmer Presents, which is responsible for thew likes of Rock on the Range, Open Air Chicago, and Houston Open Air, has been the forefront in music festivals in America. Louder Than Life is personally curated by company founder Danny Wimmer himself as a celebration of the heritage, culture, and cuisine of downtown Louisville, which was recently listed as #2 in USA Today’s “Best Local Food Scenes” as well as featured in TIME Magazine’s “America’s Best Music Scenes.”
