Michael Poulsen of Volbeat says, “Louisville is a city we enjoy performing in and the fans always create a great atmosphere for a Volbeat show. We look forward to October.” Danny Wimmer , who created the festival, adds, “Louisville is known for a lot of things – but I don’t think people realize what a great rock town this is. When I first came to Louisville, I fell in love with the city, its diverse food, its bourbon and its culture.”
