Mark your calendars for September 2019…
By Mark Jackson
Danny Wimmer Presents held a news conference recently for a huge announcement. Louisville, Kentucky, has always been the home for Louder Than Life and Bourbon and Beyond held at Champions Park, but 2019 will bring a new country festival as well and a new location for all three back to back to back weekends in September starting on September 14th.
As you may know the 2018 Bourbon and Beyond festival was interrupted by the major storms and led to the cancellation of the Louder Than Life Festival. In hopes to avoid the potential of the flooding happening again Danny Wimmer and the city of Louisville came together to move the festivals to the Highland Festival Grounds at the Kentucky Expo.
The new country festival will have such headliners as: Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Dwight Yoakam, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Jake Owen, and many more. No word yet on Bourbon and Beyond or Louder than life as of yet, but Presale is will open February 15th for all events.
Louder Than Life will be extended to a three-day festival this year and if last years lineup is any indication of what this year will bring, this will be one of the hottest rock festival tickets of the year. I’m excited to see the new event site and how the event moves to the next level for these three festivals.
