Louder Than Life 2023 will take place from September 21st-24th at the Highland Festival Grounds. Music festival production and promotion company Danny Wimmer Presents stated that Louder Than Life was given the name “America’s Biggest Rock Festival" due to the major turnout of more than 170,000 people last year. Danny Wimmer also noted in a statement that the production company listened to fans by bringing some names to the lineup, saying, “The Foo Fighters, Green Day, Tool, and Avenged Sevenfold were our most fan-requested bands for 2023, so being able to deliver this massive lineup to them is so special.”
Cleo Battle, President and CEO of Louisville Tourism, spoke about the festival and its contributions to the city of Louisville. She said, “Louder Than Life always delivers a huge weekend and is one of the top economic events annually for Louisville, further cementing the city as a top destination for music festivals. Bourbon City loves welcoming fans for America’s Biggest Rock Festival, inviting them to experience the city’s Southern hospitality, area attractions and of course urban bourbon experiences."
