Louder Than Life 2019 announced

Official press release: 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." The current music lineup for Louder Than Life is as follows (subject to change): Friday, September 27: Slipknot Staind A Day to Remember Chevelle I Prevail Architects Beartooth Motionless In White Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals GWAR The Crystal Method Graveyard Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes New Years Day All Them Witches Crown Lands Joyous Wolf Dead Posey Santa Cruz Saturday, September 28: Guns N' Roses Godsmack Ice Cube Halestorm Dropkick Murphys Stone Temple Pilots Suicidal Tendencies Melvins Andrew W.K.

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals? on a scale of down to heroin over dose, how awful is it?

Kids that drink Monster energy drinks, and take shots of Coke and Jack are stoked.

"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," what a real piece of shit.

"I have been working for YEARS to get Staind to come back for one 40 minute set. And I did it. I ALONE did it! Staind are playing because I wanted it to be, and so it is!"

LOL @ Knocked Loose (token Louisville band) and Angel Du$t (sellouts who went from oldschool hardcore to metal rock by design) on this.

LOL @ Knocked Loose (token Louisville band) and Angel Du$t (sellouts who went from oldschool hardcore to metal rock by design) on this. Knocked Loose already do this festival circuit and Angel Du$t's new stuff is in no way shape or form metal.


anonymous 4/8/2019 9:51:50 AM

Saturday only.

LOL @ Knocked Loose (token Louisville band) and Angel Du$t (sellouts who went from oldschool hardcore to metal rock by design) on this. ^^^^^^ What a snowflake. Hardcore is dead.

"What a snowflake. Hardcore is dead." ^^^^^^^^ Found the Angel Dust member sitting in a Walmart parking lot google searching his name over and over. The only thing worse than Angel Dust, is doing Angel Dust at a Turnstile show.

"The only thing worse than Angel Dust, is doing Angel Dust at a Turnstile show." not true, Angel Dust is worse than doing Angel Dust at a turnstile show. take it from someone who has done Angel Dust at a turnstile show.

Found the Angel Dust member sitting in a Walmart parking lot google searching his name over and over. The only thing worse than Angel Dust, is doing Angel Dust at a Turnstile show. ^^^^^ This guy touches wieners and "entertains children" at Drag Queen Story Time.

"sellouts who went from oldschool hardcore to metal rock by design" Nothing in Angel Du$ts discography can be even remotely described as metal. Their new record is a mix of Violent Femmes, Lemonheads, and Bad Brains. Also, what does "sellout" mean in 2019?


anonymous 4/9/2019 8:42:18 AM

So many bro in jorts and downing Jager will be in attendance.

Also, what does "sellout" mean in 2019?> Sellout means what it has always meant: to change your art/creativity so it is commercially viable. Angel Dust did this thus sold out. And clean your ears cuz they sound nothing like those bands.
