Another day closer to the end of 2016, and another festival lineup for next year has dropped. Today it’s Forecastle Festival, which will be returning to Louisville, KY for its fifteenth year and will be celebrating with LCD Soundsystem, Weezer, and Odesza set as headliners according to the release of their initial lineup on Tuesday morning.
Set to take place at its home along the Louisville riverfront July 14-16 next summer, Forecastle’s eclectic lineup will also include Cage the Elephant, Run The Jewels, GRiZ, X Ambassadors, Vince Staples, Charles Bradley, Foxygen, Conor Oberst, Aaron Lee Tasjan, and more artists which will most likely be announced in the first few months of the coming year.
In addition to the music, Forecastle has left its mark on the east coast festival landscape by taking advantage of one the state’s more popular exports among younger, socially active music fans, which would of course be Kentucky bourbon. Each year the festival teams up with the Kentucky Bourbon Trail to curate Forecastle’s Bourbon Lodge and allows guests to try and enjoy a mix of cocktails, culinary experiences, and bourbon-related activities with some of the state’s finest distillers.
GA and VIP tickets are now on sale and keep an eye out for more festival lineups to drop before the end of the year.
