The Bourbon and Beyond Festival is Back, 9.22-23.18

Article by Michael W. Bright


Louisville, KY— Can we handle another music Festival? That’s like asking us if we can handle more Bourbon. The answer to both is a resounding YES! Add to that combination fabulous food from every category, award-winning chefs, master bourbon distillers, camping, and plenty of parking (and toilets!) and you have a recipe for a truly outrageous weekend.

We here at MONKEYGOOSE Magazine are already pre-gaming for the second annual Bourbon and Beyond Festival, September 22nd and 23rd, in Louisville, KY.  It’s a high octane blend of bourbon, food, folks, and music, featuring John Mayer, Sting, Robert Plant, David Byrne, Lenny Kravitz, Sheryl Crow, Counting Crows and so much more music it will make your head spin. The bourbon will add to that effect. Certain types of tickets, camping, and hotel packages are sold out and the remainder are going fast.

Check the link below for updates, ticket info, the full lineup of music, news for foodies, and other details. Oh yeah, there’s an app for that too.

Master distillers, Michelin-starred chefs, rare dusty bottles (available only at the Festival), and three music stages set up an immersive weekend that is not for the amateur. Here’s a link to last year’s Festival review with photos:
