New waterfront concert series will light up Louisville

The series will be presented at Louisville’s Waterfront Park.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Danny Wimmer Presents (DWP), the festival promoter and producer of Louisville’s well-known Bourbon & Beyond, Louder Than Life and Hometown Rising festivals, has announced it will produce a concert series in Louisville beginning in May.

“Live On The Lawn At Waterfront Park,” the series will consist of up to 15 live events, beginning this spring. The events will feature some of the brightest names in various musical genres that will appeal to a wide range of audiences. More details will be announced soon about the individual shows.

The scenic Waterfront Park along the Ohio River is adjacent to downtown Louisville, and in February was named the #6 Best Riverwalk in the country in USA Today’s 2021 “10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards.”

Danny Wimmer Presents has had a strong relationship with the city of Louisville, starting with the long-standing rock festival Louder Than Life, returning for a sixth edition Sept. 23–26, and in recent years, developing the Louisville Trifesta that presents additional consecutive festival weekends with Bourbon & Beyond and Hometown Rising. Together, these destination events have drawn considerable attention and tourism traffic to the city, which DWP hopes to expand on with the new “Live On The Lawn At Waterfront Park” series.

To comply with existing COVID-19 guidelines, and to keep fans, artists and staff safe and healthy, DWP plans to implement a limited capacity, socially distanced live performance setup for the “Live On The Lawn At Waterfront Park” series. Current plans include a pod-style setup with each pod holding 4-6 people, based on purchase. All pods will be spaced appropriately on the site as well to maintain socially distancing while enjoying the shows.
With this Louisville partnership, Waterfront Park becomes one of several new locations that DWP will begin focusing its attention on; more details will be revealed soon about the additional venues.
