In addition, over 350 media were on hand to cover the second annual event, coming from around the U.S. and as far as away as the U.K., NETHERLANDS and TURKEY.
Added DANNY WIMMER PRESENTS CEO DANNY HAYES: “We decided to start a festival in LOUISVILLE because it is such a special city. It has a great Mayor in GREG FISCHER, hospitable local government, welcoming CVB and outstanding city services that in turn make our job really easy. We have a long-term plan to grow LOUDER THAN LIFE that includes a significant increase to the economic impact we have created in just the first two years of the festival.”
Commented Mayor FISCHER: “LOUISVILLE is a festival city – and LOUDER THAN LIFE, in just two years, has proven to be a huge success, both in terms of attendance and economic impact to the city. We look forward to many more years of hosting this impressive festival by the impressive DANNY WIMMER PRESENTS company.”
