July 26th-28th  Magnolia Bar


Every year for the event we open the doors to incorporate as many local visual artists as possible.  Some years are more limited than others, but we like to provide a platform for as many mediums of art as possible. Killer art from killer people located right here in Louisville, Ky!


Each year a portion of proceeds are donated to a local charity of our choice. While this is up for debate year-by-year, Girls Rock Louisville has been holding strong and we are happy to be assisting them again this year!  There will be a basket raffle aside from donation from festival proceeds, so make sure you check out the festival merch table! 




**Day Schedules Coming soon. 




When does the Grateful Dead tribute start?

Sorry, but I think you might have gotten lost.  The Grateful Dead have absolutely nothing to do with this event.  Keep on truckin...

This event is at a bar, is it kid friendly?

Absolutely.  Festival organizers and Magnolia Bar have taken great lengths to ensure that it will be a safe all ages environment welcome to everyone. 


What's up with the name?

It's a joke and everyone that like to say "Oh, the scene is dead..."  Clown shoes...


My band is interested in playing, how do we sign up?

Bands have been finalized for Louisville is Dead 2019.

Death Fest?
