Guns N’ Roses Announced as First Act for Louder Than Life Festival

Guns N' Roses have been announced as the first headliner for Louisville, Kentucky's Louder Than Life music festival.

Guns N’ Roses have been announced as the first headliner for Louisville, Kentucky’s Louder Than Life music festival. Festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents promises the lineup announcement of the three-day event’s biggest year on April 8.

The rock ‘n’ roll and whiskey festival will mark the legendary band’s first live appearance for 2019. Guns N’ Roses last performance was in December when they played benefit shows for the Andy Irons Foundation in Hawaii at Aloha Stadium.

“There are only a handful of bands through the years whose music not only resonates with fans, but changes the entire face of rock ‘n’ roll. Guns N’ Roses is one of those true icons,” said festival producer Danny Wimmer in a release. “Every year we want to come back bigger and better, and we can’t wait to welcome Axl, Slash, Duff and the rest of GN’R to the Louder Than Life stage.”


This year the festival will be headed to its new home at the Highland Festival Grounds at KY Expo Center from Sept. 27-29.

Tickets for Louder Than Life will go on sale April 8 at 9 am ET in conjunction with the lineup announcement. Head here for ticket prices and more information.
