Why Louisville?

LOUDER THAN LIFE, the weekend rock music and camping festival featuring over 30 of the biggest bands in hard rock and metal, is set for October 4 and October 5, 2014 at Champions Park in Louisville, Kentucky. The inaugural food, drink, and rock fest will celebrate the region's food, bourbon and craft beer industry, while honoring Louisville's history as the birthplace of bourbon.

There are destination music festivals all over America — but few that can claim a destination quite like Louisville. It might just be the "Best Town Ever" — Outside Magazine's September 2014 cover story rates Louisville as one of "The 16 Greatest Places To Live In America."

Here are a few reasons why you should attend LOUDER THAN LIFE in Louisville:

But there's more to Louisville than just gastronomical delights. This "lively, offbeat cultural mecca," which took the top spot in Lonely Planet's Top 10 U.S. Travel Destinations for 2013, has something for everyone:

LOUDER THAN LIFE will feature more than 70 food and beverage vendors. Celebrity chefs Chris Santos, Vic Vegas, Bill Kunz, and Tom Coghill will showcase their wares while more than 30 bands—including Kid Rock, Judas Priest, Korn, Five Finger Death Punch, Limp Bizkit, Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington, Volbeat, and Papa Roach—rock three stages over two days and nights.
