Louder Than Life features a selection of award-winning bourbons, whiskey, spirits, craft beer, and the best food Louisville has to offer, along with a powerful music lineup of rock legends and breaking talent performing on three stages. The festival celebrates the bourbon culture and culinary heritage of this unique American city.

The general onsale for Louder Than Life general admission tickets, VIP and Top Shelf VIP Packages, hotel and ticket packages, as well as tent and RV camping begins Friday, June 8 at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Godsmack’s Sully Erna said: “We’re honored to be headlining the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville this year! Looking forward to partying with all of you again real soon!”

Benjamin Burnley of Breaking Benjamin commented: “We’re excited to come back to Louisville for Louder Than Life 2018 and play songs from our new album, ‘Ember’, for the first time in Kentucky! We always have a good time there and look forward to what we know will be a kickass show.”

Festival producer Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents, explained: “I couldn’t be prouder of what we have accomplished since the inception of the festival. In five years, Louder Than Life has become the largest rock ‘n’ roll whiskey festival in the world, and I see no better way to celebrate its fifth year than to close out the weekend with NIN and Ice Cube.”
