Reunited thrash metal band Slayer along with Slipknot, Motley Crue and Korn are set to headline this year’s Louder Than Life festival.

This year’s Louder Than Life festival is scheduled to take place at the Highland Festival Grounds at Kentucky Exposition Center on September 26-29.

The 10th edition of the rock festival will also feature performances from Disturbed, Judas Priest, Five Finger Death Punch, Evanescence, Falling in Reverse, Breaking Benjamin, The Offspring, Staind, Till Lindemann, Chevelle, Dropkick Murphys, Halestorm, Gojira, Seether, In This Moment, Anthrax, Sum 41, Mastodon and Rage Against the Machine guitarist and solo act Tom Morello.

“We’re thrilled to announce that Slayer will be reuniting for an earth-shattering performance at Louder Than Life,” promoter Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents said of Slayer, who retired in 2019 after what they said at the time was their final tour.

He added, “I was at their last show at The Forum in 2019 and have been working since then to bring them back to the Louder stage! With over 140 bands on five stages, we’re celebrating our 10th Louder Than Life with the biggest lineup yet!”

Slayer were also announced as headliners for this year’s Riot Fest on Wednesday, February 21.
