Festival creator Danny Wimmer says, “Louisville is known for a lot of things. But I don’t think people realize what a great rock town this is. When I first came to Louisville, I fell in love with the city, its diverse food, its bourbon and its culture. It screamed LOUDER THAN LIFE and I felt this was the perfect destination for this kind of rock festival,” Adds Wimmer, “I’ve created the LOUDER THAN LIFE festival to highlight and celebrate the ‘Culinary Capital of Bourbon Country.’ And of course, the culture of rock & roll and bourbon go hand in hand!”

“We’re so excited to have the LOUDER THAN LIFE festival come to Louisville and I can’t wait for the world to try our great local food, which got its start with the birth of the cheeseburger in our city over 80 years ago,” says Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

VOLBEAT‘s Michael Poulsen adds, “Louisville is a city we enjoy performing in and the fans always create a great atmosphere for a VOLBEAT show. We look forward to October. It will be a great time for all.”
