Metallica, Korn, Nine Inch Nails and more to perform at 2021 ‘Louder Than Life’ festival

Kentucky’s Louder Than Life Festival has announced it’s official 2021 lineup, featuring headliners Nine Inch Nails, Korn, Jane’s Addiction, Judas Priest, Rise Against, Staind, Cypress Hill, Machine Gun Kelly, Snoop Dogg and Mudvayne, who have been on hiatus since 2010. Metallica will also be performing two different sets across two separate nights of the festival. In addition to the main acts, the lineup also features Anthrax, Asking Alexandria, Gojira, Pennywise, Seether, Ghostemane, Escape The Fate, Beartooth and many more.

In a press statement, promoter Danny Wimmer said “DWP (Danny Wimmer Presents) has always considered Louisville home, so to be able to bring America’s Biggest Rock Festival back in 2021 means everything to us. After a year filled with challenge after challenge, we worked incredibly hard to curate a lineup worth the wait for our fans. Weather got in the way of Nine Inch Nails in 2018, the pandemic derailed our plans for two big Metallica sets in 2020 – so to have them both back for 2021, along with Korn and the rest of this incredible lineup over four days, that’s the kind of ‘new normal’ that we’re all looking forward to.”

Louder Than Life 2021 will take place September 23-26 at Louisville’s Highland Festival Grounds, Kentucky Exposition Center. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.
