The Festival was organized in order to fund a film project documenting the impact Louisville music has had on the people of the city, as well as it's greater impact throughout the United States.
This project is titled, "Louisville is Dead: A History of Louisville Punk"
While a majority of the proceeds are dedicated to the film project, each year a percentage of the money raised is donated to a local music-centric non-profit.
We're happy to say this year will benefit GIRLS ROCK LOUISVILLE!
The name was inspired by a documentary we are currently shooting about the history of the Louisville punk scene. It's an homage to the individuals who believe that "the scene is dead." We assure you, it's live and well. More details are available on the DOCUMENTARY tab located above.
Sorry, but I think you might have gotten lost. The Greatful Dead have absolutely nothing to do with this event. Keep on truckin...
