LOUDER THAN LIFE: Band Performance Times Announced, Celebrity Chef Edward Lee Added






Date: September 17, 2015










Band performance times for the second annual LOUDER THAN LIFE have been announced at www.LouderThanLifeFestival.com. The destination festival features award-winning bourbons and spirits, craft beer, Gourmet Man Food, and a powerful music lineup at Champions Park near downtown Louisville October 3 & 4, 2015.

In addition, Louisville’s own celebrity chef Edward Lee (Food Network’s Iron Chef and Bravo’s Top Chef) has joined LOUDER THAN LIFE’s already stellar Gourmet Man Food lineup. Chef Lee will conduct cooking demos twice per day in Bourbon World presented by The Louisville Courier-Journal, as well as curate a special menu for VIP guests in the It’s Miller Time VIP Lounge. Lee’s 610 Magnolia has long been recognized as one of Louisville’s premier farm-to-table dining experiences, while his newest venture, MilkWood (with Chef Kevin Ashworth) takes small plates to big heights with “Southern Inspiration + Asian Flavors + Bourbon Cocktails.”

Festival producers are also excited to announce Tito’s Handmade Vodka as the official vodka of LOUDER THAN LIFE.

Describing his experience at the inaugural LOUDER THAN LIFE in 2014, Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon recently told Revolver (October/November 2015), “They’re turning these festivals into more than a festival—it’s like an event for everyone to come to, and I think that’s something that a lot of festivals lack these days. Makes it a bit more fun, doesn’t it?”

LOUDER THAN LIFE features a selection of award-winning bourbons, whiskey, spirits, craft beer, and Gourmet Man Food curated personally by festival creator Danny Wimmer, along with a powerful music lineup of rock legends and breaking talent including Rob Zombie, ZZ Top, Godsmack, Shinedown, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, Breaking Benjamin, 3 Doors Down, Bring Me The Horizon, and many more. Bands will perform on four stages, while attendees will enjoy bourbon exhibitions and sampling, along with more than 70 food and beverage vendors that will help celebrate the bourbon culture and culinary heritage of this unique American city.

The destination festival will also feature live, in-ring matches with WWE®’s NXT® Superstars, as well as interactive experiences and art installations such as Big Bully, artist autograph signings at the Monster Energy Hospitality Rig, the Monster Energy viewing area with beverage sampling, The Crazy Dave’s Music Experience, Jack Daniel’s Experience, Jäger World, It’s Miller Time VIP Lounge, Zippo Music Experience and more.

The LOUDER THAN LIFE live, in-ring matches with WWE®’s NXT Superstars will include Finn Bálor™, Tyler Breeze™, Bayley™, Baron Corbin™, The Vaudevillians™, Enzo Amore™, Big Cass™, Carmella™, and more (talent subject to change).
