Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, Slipknot & Kiss headline Louder Than Life 2022

When the 2021 edition of Louder Than Life concluded last September – having welcomed a record-breaking crowd of 160,000 people in Louisville, Kentucky – local newspaper LEO Weekly pondered, “How will DWP top this for Louder Than Life 2022? I don’t know, but I’m looking forward to seeing you all there again for it.”

Festival producers Danny Wimmer Presents have found a way to do just that with an incredible lineup for 2022, announced today, that will make Louder Than Life even larger than life this fall, September 22-25, at its home at the Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center In Louisville, KY.

The massive list of talent includes nearly 100 music artists across four full days, headlined by RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS in one of their first shows back with all four original members, NINE INCH NAILS, SLIPKNOT and KISS, with additional must-see performances from SHINEDOWN, ROB ZOMBIE, BRING ME THE HORIZON, ALICE IN CHAINS (and a separate set from JERRY CANTRELL), ALICE COOPER, INCUBUS, EVANESCENCE, LAMB OF GOD, TENACIOUS D, YUNGBLUD, CHEVELLE, PAPA ROACH, HALESTORM, MASTODON, IN THIS MOMENT, THE PRETTY RECKLESS and many more.

Known as the World’s Largest Rock ’N’ Roll Whiskey Festival, in addition to music, festivalgoers will also be able to enjoy four days of award-winning whiskey, bourbons, spirits, craft beer, and the best food Louisville has to offer, as well as sponsor activations that celebrate the bourbon culture and culinary heritage of this unique American city.

This is how you do festivals right. Four days of incredible music with so many talented artists. Slipknot is excited to share the stage with Nine Inch Nails, KISS and so many more. Stay safe, and we’ll see you in Louisville.
