The world famous Louder than Life music festival has been announced for this Fall. One of the largest rock festivals in the nation, the event is scheduled to take place Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, 2017. In a short time, the festival has rocketed towards one of the more coveted tickets in music; this will be the fourth year it has taken place.

The event will once again feature its now-signature “gourmet man food,” alongside local craft beer and Bourbon World, intended as a celebration of the state world famous for its bourbon heritage.

Last year, Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold headlined the event. Stay tuned for the soon-to-be released bands that will be performing.

PR in the Time of Pandemic

No one knows artists better than Amy Sciarretto, industry veteran and President of Atom Splitter PR. So when the world hit pause and artists had to call an audible, there is no one better to talk to about how those bands are pivoting in a new reality. Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.

HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
