Danny Wimmer Presents has released the lineup for 2004’s Bourbon & Beyond – the World’s Largest Bourbon & Music Festival, and while it may be a lengthy name, it’s unquestionably an event that offers a staggering amount of notable artists to keep you grooving whilst indulging in the titular beverage.

The event takes place at the Highland Festival Grounds at Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky over the course of four days – September 19, 20, 21, and 22 – and even at that length, the lineup will still leave you wondering exactly how they’re going to pack that many artists into that amount of time.
