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 5th year than to close out the weekend with NINE INCH NAILS and ICE CUBE.”

In addition to performances from top music artists, attendees at Louder Than Life will enjoy a variety of onsite food and beverage options celebrating the unique spirits and food of the Louisville region.

Attendees 21+ up can choose to visit Bourbon World presented by the Louisville Courier Journal, and enjoy crafted cocktails at the exclusive Down The Rabbit Hole Speakeasy; sip fine wine at the Caduceus Wine Garden; or enjoy a local brew at the Craft Beer Bar. Other spirits can be enjoyed at the Heavy Tiki Bar presented by Jim Beam, or at the Jack Daniel’s Experience for a “taste of Tennessee.”

Fans 21+ can explore the enormous Bourbon World presented by the Louisville Courier Journal. With 95% of the world’s bourbon coming from Kentucky, festival producers Danny Wimmer Presents have hand-selected expressions from the top distilleries to create a unique opportunity to enjoy bourbons and exclusive one-time specialty cocktails inside what may be the World’s Loudest–and Largest–Bourbon Tent. Site-wide, an enormous selection of bourbons will be available.

Having already dove headfirst into this venture, Maynard found out from a distant relative that wine making is in his blood. His Great Grandfather, “Spirito” Marzo, had vineyards and made wine in Venaus, Italy, just North of Turino in Piemonte.
