Plus, being able to celebrate hometown heroes, My Morning Jacket and Kentucky’s own, Tyler Childers, this year’s Bourbon & Beyond lineup is truly a career highlight for me. We can’t wait to see everyone this September to celebrate the pure magic of this festival and the great city of Louisville.”


“The Commonwealth of Kentucky is honored to be hosting Bourbon & Beyond in Louisville this September,” says Governor Andy Beshear, “The festival brings in fans from all over the world and showcases the best of Kentucky; highlighting our rich culture of bourbon, the best in local culinary and a top tier musical lineup. We can’t wait to welcome fans once again for this great tradition that we all in Kentucky are proud to call our own.”

Beck, president & CEO of Kentucky Venues. “Bourbon & Beyond has attracted a global fanbase that continues to visit the Commonwealth, and we’re excited to partner with Danny Wimmer Presents yet again to bring people together in the name of bourbon and music.”


“Louisville has become a top destination for music festivals,” says Cleo Battle, President and CEO of Louisville Tourism. “Events like Bourbon & Beyond continue to solidify that growing reputation attracting new visitors to Bourbon City and giving them not only a taste of a world-class event but also exposing them to the city’s Southern hospitality, iconic attractions and Bourbon’s home.”
