Here’s something to get loud about — the group behind the Bourbon and Beyond + Louder Than Life music festivals has made a donation to some Derby City nonprofits.

Danny Wimmer Presents recently donated $100,000 to five local organizations, benefiting a range of causes, from the local arts and LGBTQ+ communities to the the businesses around the Highland Festival Grounds:

This round of donations is part of a new initiative created by Louisville Tourism, called “Leave the Legacy.” The program connects event organizers with local nonprofits, ensuring that they can give back to the community that made their event successful.

This year, ~300,000 folks attended the festivals combined. Tickets for next year’s editions of Bourbon and Beyond + Louder Than Life are on sale now.
