Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, Slipknot and KISS have been announced as headliners for this year’s Louder Than Life festival.

The star studded event, known as the world’s largest rock ‘n’ roll whiskey festival, takes place at the Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center In Louisville, Kentucky, between 22-25 September. You can visit the event’s official website for further information.

Other names on the massive line-up include: Bring Me The Horizon, Yungblud, Shinedown, Rob Zombie, Alice In Chains, Alice Cooper, Incubus, Evanescence, Lamb Of God, Tenacious D, Chevelle, Papa Roach, Halestorm, Mastodon, In This Moment, The Pretty Reckless and many more.

“This is how you do festivals right,” Slipknot’s Clown said of the event. “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.”

Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe added: “We look forward to returning to Louisville for Louder Than Life 2022 and this time to share the stage with KISS, Slipknot, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, and of course our Richmond, VA buddies in GWAR.”

Louder Than Life is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, one of America’s largest independent producers of destination music festivals. Due to demand, the organisers added a fourth day, with the festival kicking off on Thursday.

Elsewhere in Slipknot news, frontman Corey Taylor recently announced his very first UK shows with his solo band. The dates kick off at London’s legendary Palladium on 17 October and include a special gig on Friday 21 October at the pre-party of the ‘For The Love Of Horror’ convention at Manchester’s BEC Arena.
