As festival producers Danny Wimmer Presents prepare to announce details for the 2015 LOUDER THAN LIFE Festival, they’ve released an official recap video with highlights from the festival’s 2014 debut. Check out the video here: https://vimeo.com/118846628.
The first annual LOUDER THAN LIFE Festival was held October 4-5, 2014 with 36,826 in attendance at Champions Park near downtown Louisville, Kentucky. The festival celebrated Louisville’s culture and cuisine, with a selection of rock music, bourbon, whiskey, craft beer and “gourmet man food” curated personally by Danny Wimmer.
The inaugural festival featured performances from more than 30 of the biggest bands in hard rock and metal–including Kid Rock, Judas Priest, Korn, Five Finger Death Punch, Limp Bizkit, Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington, Volbeat, Papa Roach and more–playing on three stages, plus celebrity chef appearances by Chris Santos, Bill Kunz, and Tom Coghill on the Jägermeister Cooking Stage. More than 70 food and beverage vendors were on hand to help celebrate the bourbon culture and culinary heritage of this unique American city.
Festival producers are working closely with the city to make the 2015 LOUDER THAN LIFE event even better for locals and the tens of thousands of fans that traveled from around the U.S. and as far away as Australia, the Netherlands and South America for this one-of-a-kind experience.
Mayor Greg Fischer elaborated on LOUDER THAN LIFE, saying, “Louisville is home to some of the world’s best music and food and there’s definitely only one area to come to for bourbon, so where else would you have a festival experience such as LOUDER THAN LIFE? We’re excited that we could host this great event in such a super venue down by our waterfront and show all the music, food and bourbon fans what our city and people are all about.”
