LOUISVILLE, KY – The Forecastle Festival is excited to announce the initial lineup for its 11th annual three-day music celebration, featuring Grammy Award winners The Black Keys, alongside The String Cheese Incident and the Avett Brothers leading the festival’s rich, eclectic offerings. The event will again take place July 12 – 14, 2013 at Louisville’s scenic, award-winning Waterfront Park.
Tickets for this year’s festival go on sale this Wednesday, March 6th at Noon EST on Forecastle.com. Purchase tickets in full, or opt for one of our special payment plans, available for both General Admission or VIP tickets.
Highlighted in Rolling Stone as a top event in 2012, and acclaimed by Outside as one of the “Top 15 Outdoor Festivals in the USA,” the Forecastle Festival has evolved into one of the country’s premier festival destinations. The event offers an immersive experience that’s distinctly Louisville- beyond the first-class musical lineup—highlighting the region’s burgeoning culinary and arts scene, Kentucky’s unique bourbon heritage and more. The festival continues to emphasize sustainability practices and conservation initiatives, highlighted through the festival’s non-profit organization, the Forecastle Foundation.
Alabama Shakes started blowing up in Nashville right after their two night performance with Jack White at Ryman Auditorium. After seeing Alabama Shakes, Wells Adams stated “That if Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin had a love child, it would be Brittany Howard.” Hope you enjoy this live version of “Hold On” by Alabama Shakes! By the way, is their any other radio station in the country that would bring you a free show featuring Alabama Shakes?!?!?
