A music festival that revolves around not only music, but bourbon and food is so on-brand for Louisville, KY and that very festival--Bourbon and Beyond--will be back for year three next week! B&B will take place over three days with three stages of music including headliners Zac Brown Band, Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters, Hall & Oates, Foo Fighters, and ZZ Top. In addition to all the musical goodness, you can break up your schedule and catch a talk from a bourbon expert at the Kentucky Gold Stage, participate in a swing dance lesson at the Bourbon Derby Dance Hall, or catch another talk or culinary demo from one of many guest chefs including Graham Elliot of MasterChef.
