Slipknot, Disturbed added as festival headliners

Danny Wimmer Presents has announced lineup additions to two of its fall festivals. For Louder Than Life, Disturbed, Volbeat and Atreyu now will appear at the festival, scheduled for Sept. 23 to 26, 2021, in Louisville, Kentucky. Welcome to Rockville now will feature Slipknot, A Day to Remember and Gojira at the four-day event set for Nov. 11 to 14, 2021, in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The lineup changes are the result of Nine Inch Nails pulling out of Louder Than Life and Welcome to Rockville and Deftones dropping off the WTR bill due to COVID-19 concerns.

“I want to say a massive thank you to Disturbed, Volbeat and Atreyu for immediately stepping in when we called them last week on such short notice,” DWP founder Danny Wimmer said. “The last few weeks have been a wild ride, but these bands made it clear how much they want to be out there playing for their fans and will be ready to take the stage.

“We also talked to Metallica last week, who have confirmed their excitement to play Louder Than Life this September. The road is going to be bumpy, but the team at DWP is undeterred and will continue to adapt to any road blocks. We are committed to putting on the rock reunion we’ve all been waiting for. Keep on keeping on.”

“Disturbed cannot wait to get back at it. We are beyond excited to share the stage with the legends and friends Metallica, Judas Priest, Volbeat, Mudvayne, Korn and so many others at next month’s Louder Than Life. See ya in Kentucky,” Disturbed said.

A Day to Remember said: “I can’t wait to play Rockville this year! It will be the first time in A Day to Remember’s career to play Daytona. This lineup is not going to be one you will want to miss. So many amazing bands!“

In addition, DWP has announced that both Louder Than Life and Welcome to Rockville will be back for four days in 2022. Fans can take advantage of a new layaway option that allows fans to lock in tickets for both 2021 and 2022 and pay over time.

Louder Than Life will return to Louisville Sept. 22 to 25, 2022, and Welcome to Rockville will return to Daytona Beach in May 2022.

Starting today, Louder Than Life fans will be able to lock in their 2021 and 2022 passes for only $50 down and 11 months to pay them off. Current 2021 pass holders will be able to lock in their 2022 passes at guaranteed Level One pricing at only $22 down, with 11 months to pay off. This is a limited time offer, while supplies last.

Complete details regarding Welcome to Rockville’s confirmed May 2022 dates and layaway plans will be coming this week.
