This year’s Louder than Life Festival was the biggest one so far in the four years of the event with over sixty thousand people in attendance over the two day event.  It’s no wonder that with the perfect weather and a killer line up that the turn out was amazing and had people lining up hours before the gates even opened. It was crazy to see so many people rushing through the gates and running full speed to get their spot front and center to the stages. The line up this year included Sets from Ozzy Osbourne with Zakk Wylde & Prophets Of Rage, plus Five Finger Death Punch, Incubus, Rob Zombie, Stone Sour & more. If the line up wasn’t enough there was also Bourbon World with dozens of different bourbons to choose from and over a dozen of local venders with a Varity of large portions of food choices. This was the third year that Blurt has covered this festival and I must give a huge shout out to the Danny Wimmer Presents staff! This is one of if not smoothest events that I cover. Kristine and her staff is top notch and very helpful to all attending press. I can’t wait to see what all that Louder than Life brings next year! If you want to be a part of next years’ party, you should start planning now and buy your tickets early before they sell out.
