With Louder Than Life being one of the few festivals to return in 2021 amidst two years of uncertainty, over 160,000 fans converged on the city of Louisville, Kentucky. Being one of those fans, engulfed by the sounds and smells that I missed so dearly, I could only wonder how the minds at Danny Wimmer Presents could ever top such a glorious comeback!
