With the announcement of Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Mastodon, Rise Against, Stone Sour, Prophets of Rage and Incubus as headliners, the Louder than Life Festival set to take place at Champions Park in Louisville, Kentucky Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 is shaping up to be one of the biggest hard rock festivals this autumn. And especially exciting for Ozzy fans is the fact that his guitarist for the show will be Zakk Wylde, who has not performed with Osbourne for a decade. Prophets of Rage is also an interesting bunch that features Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill luminaries Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D., B-Real and DJ Lord.

Louisville is, of course, renowned for its whiskey and there will be plenty of it on hand along with other spirits, regional craft beers and foods that celebrate the culinary heritage of the city. There will be food and drink tastings, artist autograph signing sessions and special experiences put together by Bourbon World, FYE, Zippo and more. In addition to the headliners, these acts are also scheduled to appear:
