Producer Danny Wimmer Presents celebrates the triumphant return of Bourbon & Beyond with the debut of Rocks Room Presented by Zelle®. Beginning August 12, 2022, attendees can start participating in the festival’s return by using Zelle® through August 31 to receive elite perks such as intimate music performances, food, or bourbon tastings at the first restaurant in the festival’s history.
Held at the Highland Festival Grounds at Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Bourbon & Beyond features headlining performances from Pearl Jam, Chris Stapleton, Kings of Leon, Jack White, Brandi Carlile, Alanis Morissette, Greta Van Fleet, The Doobie Brothers’ 50th anniversary celebration (featuring Michael McDonald, Pat Simmons, Tom Johnston and John McFee), plus more rock, Americana, bluegrass, blues and alt-rock artists. As the world’s largest bourbon and music festival, Bourbon & Beyond also includes a variety of unique bourbon and culinary experiences with demos and tastings from master distillers and celebrity chefs.
“We always strive to provide amazing experiences for our fans, and it has been my longtime goal to bring a fully functioning restaurant on site,” says producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents. “Through this collaboration with Zelle®, we involve attendees in a 360 experience before and during the event. Attendees will receive an interactive engagement with both brands that will create lifelong memories.”
