Unfortunately, Bourbon & Beyond had to come to an end on Sunday, but that didn’t stop attendees from making the most of their time there.
The festival still had a lot of great music, food, and bourbon to offer before the end of the four-day weekend.
Attendees arrived at the Highlands Festival Grounds on Phillips Lane in Louisville at midday on a sunny, low-80s day to see Hannah Wicklund perform on the T-Mobile Oak Stage. Deborah Rayne claimed she was “very good” despite her unfamiliarity with the artist.
Rayne traveled all the way from New York to see Stapleton and Caamp on Sunday. She also saw Alanis Morrissette on Thursday, Brandi Carlile on Friday, and Pearl Jam on Saturday.
Caamp will play twice: once at 6:10 p.m. on the T-Mobile stage, and once at 3:15 p.m., for an additional fee, in the more intimate setting of The Rocks Room, presented by Zelle.
Rayne, who spent all four days at the festival, praised its “amazing music,” “beautiful weather,” and “wonderful bourbon.” In 2018, when she went to the festival, torrential rains forced organizers to cancel a full day of activities due to safety concerns.
This has been one helluva weekend! We got one more day to, let’s keep those good times rollin! ✨🥃🎉

Fans of today’s headlining act, Kentucky native Chris Stapleton, have come from all around the Bluegrass State to be here. Case in point: Jason Steffens, a resident of northern California who made the trip south to visit Stapleton.
Northern California resident Jeff Steffens traveled to Georgia and then drove to Louisville with his father to see Stapleton perform at his first Bourbon & Beyond.
He remarked, “It’s been fantastic so far.”
According to Steffens, seeing Marcus King was also quite high on his list of musts.
Another Sunday headliner is The Doobie Brothers, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary by presenting a set at the festival that fuses rock ‘n’ roll with R&B, blues, country, and bluegrass. See TheActiveNews.Com for the most recent and comprehensive coverage of breaking news.
