Danny Wimmer Presents has done it again. The festival producer has conspired to bring together some of the best names in hard rock with a slant on Louisville's backbone--bourbon whiskey and gourmet food. The two day music festival, announced on June 5, will occur on the weekend of October 4 and 5 at Champions Park in Lousiville, Kent. Headliners will feature Kid Rock, Korn, Five Finger Death Punch and the return of Judas Priest across three stages.

According to Wimmer, "The list of whiskeys, craft beers and food partners for Louder Than Life is growing daily,” and already includes over a dozen premier distilleries, an impressive list of craft microbrew beer companies, local and Food Network seen eateries, as well as a handful of celebrity chef appearances. The underlying food theme will be presented as "gourmet man food" alongside bourbon exhibitions and local craft beers.

The complete music lineup for the two days has been initially announced as:

Saturday, October 4: Judas Priest, Korn, Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington, Limp Bizkit, Alter Bridge, Mastodon, Theory of a Deadman, Of Mice & Men, Steel Panther, Memphis May Fire, Pop Evil, Fuel, Otherwise, Thousand Foot Krutch, Nonpoint, Wilson, Flaw; and
