Bruno Mars is celebrating one of Kentucky’s finest exports…
The 37-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer/songwriter and multiple Grammy winner will be among the headlining acts for this year’s Bourbon & Beyond festival at the Highland Festival Grounds in Louisville, Kentucky.
Mars’ co-headliners include Brandi Carlile, The Killers and The Black Keys atop an eclectic lineup of rock, pop, folk, blues and country acts from September 14-17.
The four-day event’s roster announced on Wednesday (March 8) will also feature Billy Strings, Train, Midland, Buddy Guy, Mavis Staples, Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors and The Lone Bellow on the first night, which will be topped by Carlile.
Night two will find the Killers atop a list including Duran Duran, Hozier, Brittany Howard, Bastille, The Gaslight Anthem, Wayne Newton, Inahler, Joy Oladokun and more.
The Keys and Crowes will top Saturday’s rocking run-down, with support from The Avett Brothers, Spoon, First Aid Kit, Old Crow Medicine Show, City and Colour, Paolo Nutini, Luke Grimes and Danielle Ponder.
The final night pairs headliner Mars with Blondie, Jon Batiste, Ryan Bingham, Babyface, Aloe Blacc, ZZ Ward and Fantastic Negrito, among many others.
Each day will also feature a full lineup on the Bluegrass Situation Stage.
Tickets — including weekend GA, Weekend Mint VIP, Angels Envy Beyond VIP and single day GA and single day Mint VIP — are all available now here.
As always, in addition to a full day and night of music, the fest will host bourbon and food stages with appearances from master distillers, A-list chefs and, of course, dozens of bourbons to taste.
