The Louder Than Life Festival, which was to feature two headline sets from Metallica, is one of three music festivals that have been canceled by Danny Wimmer Presents due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The organizers are offering full refunds for all ticket holders.
A statement read in part: “In our heart of hearts we hoped and prayed that COVID-19 would not prevent us from having the 2020 Louisville Trifesta. In what feels like a repetitive bad dream, we now have to announce that Hometown Rising, Louder Than Life and Bourbon & Beyond festivals, held at Highland Festival Grounds at Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY, are being cancelled for 2020. We are working really hard to bring as much of our 2020 lineups back to 2021.”
