Forecastle festival in July


The 8th annual Forecastle Festival is coming up next month, and will be at the Waterfront for three days, from July 10th to the 12th.

A festival for the gathering of ‘equal parts Music, Art, and Activism’, Forecastle always has a good music line-up. This year’s bands and musicians include Widespread Panic, The Black Crowes, The Black Keys, The Avett Brothers, Zappa Plays Zappa, and Man Man, among others. The will also be many local Djs playing.

In the art category, Brad White and The Sustainable Living Roadshow will have an exhibition at the festival, featuring green workshops, entertainment, speakers, and more.

And, finally, in the activism category, a couple dozen speakers and organizations will be there, including Christopher Childs of Greenpeace International, and many Louisville-based and other regional organizations. It should be interesting and educational, with topics spamming animal rights, protecting the Earth, and river and farm protection, among many, many others.

Single-day tickets are $40 when pre-ordered, and three-day tickets are $100, with children under 5 admitted for free. If you come the day of the show, single-day tickets are $45. Tickets can be bought at the official Forecastle Festival website and at Ear X-tacy, as well as Ticketmaster and various other ticket vendors.
