The promoter: “The pandemic derailed our plans for two big Metallica sets in 2020”

The promoter Danny Wimmer said that the lineup was incredibly hard to curate. Below is his statement about Louder Than Life 2021.

“DWP (Danny Wimmer Presents) has always considered Louisville home, so to be able to bring America’s Biggest Rock Festival back in 2021 means everything to us”. After a year filled with challenge after challenge, we worked incredibly hard to curate a lineup worth the wait for our fans. Weather got in the way of Nine Inch Nails in 2018, the pandemic derailed our plans for two big Metallica sets in 2020 – so to have them both back for 2021, along with Korn and the rest of this incredible lineup over four days, that’s the kind of ‘new normal’ that we’re all looking forward to.”
