Official press release:

Danny Wimmer Presents has announced lineup additions to two of its fall festivals. For Louder Than Life, rock heavyweights Disturbed, Volbeat and Atreyu will now appear at the festival, scheduled for September 23-26, 2021 at the Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center. And Welcome To Rockville welcomes Slipknot, A Day To Remember and Gojira for the massive four-day event, November 11-14, 2021 in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The changes come after previous headliners Nine Inch Nails and Deftones canceled all 2021 tour dates and the DWP team worked around the clock to secure new acts for fans.

Danny Wimmer Presents founder Danny Wimmer says:

“I want to say a massive thank you to Slipknot, Disturbed, A Day To Remember, Volbeat, Gojira and Atreyu for immediately stepping in when we called them last week on such short notice. The last few weeks have been a wild ride, but these bands made it clear how much they want to be out there playing for their fans and will be ready to take the stage. We also talked to Metallica last week, who have confirmed their excitement to play our festivals in September, October and November. The road is going to be bumpy, but the team at DWP is undeterred and will continue to adapt to any road blocks. We are committed to putting on the rock reunion(s) we’ve all been waiting for. Keep On Keeping On.”

Disturbed adds:

Disturbed cannot wait to get back at it. We are beyond excited to share the stage with the legends and friends Metallica, Judas Priest, Volbeat, Mudvayne, Korn and so many others at next month’s Louder Than Life. See ya in Kentucky.”

And A Day To Remember says:

“I can’t wait to play Rockville this year! It will be the first time in A Day To Remember’s career to play Daytona. This line up is not going to be one you will want to miss. So many amazing bands!“
