2018 Louder Than Life Cancelled

The 2018 Louder Than Life Festival has been cancelled “due to unsafe conditions resulting from ongoing rain and flooding at the festival site.” The event, which was supposed to take place on September 28-30 at Champions Park in Lousville, Kentucky, was set to feature Alice in Chains, Godsmack, Nine Inch Nails, and more.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“Dear Louder Than Life fans,

It is with deep regret that we inform you that this weekend’s Louder Than Life festival has been canceled due to unsafe conditions resulting from ongoing rain and flooding at the festival site—Champions Park. After carefully inspecting the grounds and infrastructure this evening, the City and we have determined that it is no longer possible to make the festival site safe in time for this weekend.

We appreciate the outpouring of support from our fans, the numerous offers to come out and help, and the herculean efforts of the City of Louisville in trying to make the festival happen. The one thing we will never sacrifice is the safety of our fans, bands, staff and patrons.

Before making the decision to cancel the festival, we looked at every option, from moving the event to another location to breaking the event up into smaller events in various venues. Unfortunately, it’s not logistically possible, and the weather is just not cooperating. It is not safe to attempt to move equipment, and replacement equipment is not available.

We are so proud of this year’s festival experience that included incredible music, a showcase for Louisville’s great food scene, and of course an unparalleled offering of Kentucky bourbon, and more. We’re so disappointed to not get the chance to share all of this with you. This year’s Louder Than Life was going to be the momentous experience you all deserve.

We will be back next year even bigger and better, and look forward to continuing our relationship with our incredible fans and this great city.

As a result of this cancelation, DWP will be offering full refunds for all ticket, official hotel and camping package purchases.

For those who purchased via Front Gate Tickets via internet or phone, orders will be processed automatically. Please allow up to 3 weeks for charges to be processed.

For any further questions or assistance, please email info@dwpresents.com.”

Vinnie Paul All-Star Tributes To Be Held At Louder Than Life & Aftershock Festivals

This year’s Louder Than Life and Aftershock festivals will be hosting some special all-star tributes for the late Vinnie Paul (Pantera, HELLYEAH, etc.). The sets are being curated by SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin and they will feature various artists performing Pantera and Damageplan covers.

Members of the following bands will be participating:

Louder Than Life: Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, HELLYEAH, Sevendust, GWAR, Bullet For My Valentine, Body Count, Kyng, Cane Hill, and more.

Aftershock: Korn, Godsmack, Deftones, HELLYEAH, Shinedown, Sevendust, GWAR, Kyng, Emmure, and more.

Mangin commented:

“Vinnie is an idol turned big time friend, and he left a massive void on this earth. When Danny [Wimmer] and Gary [Spivack] asked me to put together something special for Vin, I knew the best way to pay tribute to him would be to throw a Texas-sized jam session belting out Pan-mutha-fukkin-tera songs loud & proud! Everyone involved is doing this because they love Vinnie, and together we can all carry on his name, music and spirit forever!”

Louder Than Life will be held on September 28-30 at Champions Park in Louisville, KY and Aftershock will be held on October 13-14 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA.
