Louder than Life 2018 will feature Nine Inch Nails, and the festival has extended to three days

A few weeks ahead of the full lineup announcement, Louder than Life have officially revealed the first headliner. Trent Reznor and the industrial metal guys of Nine Inch Nails will bring their heavy, electronically-fueled music to the 2018 edition of the festival, which will take place this September in Louisville, Kentucky.

While the festival has always been a two day event, held on a Saturday and Sunday in late September or early October, this year’s event will span three days for the first time ever. The festival will be held Sept. 28 through 30 at Champions Park.

The full lineup for the festival will be announced on Monday, June 4. Last year’s lineup featured Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, Prophets of Rage, Stone Sour, Mastodon, Rise Against and more. For ticket details and more information, head to the event’s official website at

Louder than Life is far from the only live show for Nine Inch Nails this year. Reznor and company will kick off their Cold and Black and Infinite tour on Sept. 13 in Phoenix, Arizona, and stay on the road through a four-night stand at the Palladium in Los Angeles from Dec. 7 to Dec. 12.  The band will also release the third and final piece of their new trilogy of releases, “Bad Witch,” on June 22. It will mark the group’s follow-up to 2016’s “Not the Actual Events” and 2017’s “Add Violence” EPs.
