Louder Than Life’s lineup just got bigger than life. The Kentucky festival has announced Nine Inch Nails and Korn will join Metallica as headliners for its 2021 edition.
Louder Than Life will return to Louisville at the KY Expo Center’s Highland Festival Grounds from Sept. 23 to 26. The headliners will be joined by Judas Priest, Snoop Dogg, Jane’s Addiction, Staind, Rise Against, Mudvayne, Cypress Hill, Machine Gun Kelly, Anthrax, Gojira, Ghostemane, Seether, Pennywise, Beartooth, The Distillers and Killswitch Engage.
In 2019, festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents announced that Metallica would headline all five of its festivals. Given the pandemic, Metallica’s headlining sets were moved to the promoter’s 2021 dates.
