ZZ Top's Billy F. Gibbons says, "We're amped up about making the show at Louisville's Louder Than Life. It's a win/win/win with rockin' and rollin', terrific cuisine and downright drinkable drinks. Even while performing, we'll make a way to check it out."
As Gibbons stated, Louder Than Life is more than just music, as festival goers will have a chance to check out some of the Gourmet Man Food, bourbon and craft beers available specifically for the festival experience. And WWE NXT will also have live in-ring wrestling matches featuring some of the WWE NXT Superstars. You can also check out Monster Energy's artist autograph signings, Crazy Dave's Music Experience interactive rock star exhibit, The Jack Daniels Experience mobile museum and the Zippo Encore Music Experience pop-up retail shop.
Louder Than Life festival producer Danny Wimmer states, “It isn’t often that a lineup comes together to represent a multigenerational greatest hits playlist -- but I think that is exactly what I was able to accomplish with the bands playing this year’s Louder Than Life. I’ve also been working hard with our participating chefs to add even more flavors and surprises to our selection of Gourmet Man Food. And with the very best that Louisville and the region has to offer from its distilleries and breweries, I am proud to say that this festival will have something for everyone.”
