The festival is being produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, a Los Angeles-based production company.

"When I first came to Louisville, I fell in love with the city, its diverse food, its bourbon and its culture," Danner Wimmer said in a news release. "It screamed 'LOUDER THAN LIFE' and I felt this was the perfect destination for this kind of rock festival...I met with Mike Maloney from the Mayor's office, who shared with me his extensive knowledge of the city. I learned amazing facts about Louisville and its history, tasted incredible small batch bourbons from local distilleries, sampled the delicious regional cuisine -- which Mike dubbed 'gourmet man food' -- and experienced Louisville's welcoming atmosphere. I've created the LOUDER THAN LIFE festival to highlight these discoveries and celebrate the 'Culinary Capital of Bourbon Country.' And of course, the culture of rock and roll and bourbon go hand-in-hand."

Tickets for the festival go on sale June 13 at 10 a.m.
