‘Louder Than Life’ 2021 has expanded to four days, September 23-26, at the Highland Festival Grounds at the KY Expo Center in Louisville, KY.
Promoter Danny Wimmer Presents has revealed the fest’s full line-up, which will be led by headliners Metallica (two nights / two unique sets), Nine Inch Nails and Korn. The roster is rounded out by Judas Priest, Snoop Dogg, Jane’s Addiction, Staind, Rise Against, Mudvayne, Cypress Hill, Machine Gun Kelly, Anthrax, Gojira, Ghostemane, Seether, Pennywise, Beartooth, The Distillers, Killswitch Engage and many more.
“DWP has always considered Louisville home, so to be able to bring America’s Biggest Rock Festival back in 2021 means everything to us. After a year filled with challenge after challenge, we worked incredibly hard to curate a lineup worth the wait for our fans,” says Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents. “Weather got in the way of Nine Inch Nails in 2018, the pandemic derailed our plans for two big Metallica sets in 2020 – so to have them both back for 2021, along with KORN and the rest of this incredible lineup over four days, that’s the kind of ‘new normal’ that we’re all looking forward to.”
