Kentucky-based music festival Louder Than Life just announced the final lineup for its 2019 edition and promises to be a real treat for all rock and metal fans. After revealing Guns N’ Roses as the first headliners last week, the organizers now shared that Slipknot and Disturbed join the bill as well.

The festival, which will take place from September 27th to September 29th in Louisville will also see performances from Ice Cube, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Godsmack, A Day to Remember, Suicidal Tendencies, Stone Temple Pilots, Breaking Benjamin and many more.

“Slipknot has always had some of the most loyal, rabid fans in rock, but now they are at that pivotal moment when they’ve crossed over into iconic status; Disturbed has had their best touring numbers to date this year; then top it off with one of the biggest rock bands of all time in Guns N’ Roses…this year is our most massive lineup yet,” – said festival producer Danny Wimmer in a statement.

One of the most anticipated sets on Louder Than Life, however, will be the one from recently reunited Staind. This will be the band’s first live performance together in more than five years.

“We wouldn’t be living up to the name Louder Than Life if we didn’t come back bigger and badder than ever, giving fans something they can’t see anywhere else,” – Wimmer added.”Getting Staind back together and plugged in on the main stage is something that I’ve been working on for years. These are songs that need to be heard, that fans have been dying to hear — Staind has been one of the most requested bands on our socials, and it’s an honor to be bringing their music back for the fans at Louder Than Life.”
