Louisville, Kentucky's three-day Bourbon & Beyond festival is returning Sept. 20-22 with a jaw-dropping lineup that tops even last year's rain-hindered, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer-filled roster.

Topping the bills each day are arena headliners Foo Fighters, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters (who were to play last year's B&B but had their set canceled due to bad weather) and the Zac Brown Band.

But 2019's Bourbon & Beyond lineup is one that doesn't soon let up the further you scroll down the poster. Also performing: John Fogerty, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Flaming Lips, Hall & Oates, Squeeze, Grace Potter, Alison Krauss, Trey Anastasio Band, ZZ Top, Leon Bridges, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Kurt Vile, Margo Price, Little Steven, Jenny Lewis, Del McCoury Band, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Live and many others.
