The Forecastle Festival has announced that more than a dozen acts will be added to its 15th anniversary lineup, including Kentucky’s own Sturgill Simpson, pop duo Phantogram, indie art veterans Spoon and many more.
“The 15-year anniversary of Forecastle reflects the eclectic, innovative and stimulating spirit that has propelled us forward since our humble beginnings in Louisville’s Olmsted Parks,” said Forecastle founder JK McKnight in a news release. “It’s a party with a purpose: a unique cross section of culture and activism, coupled with the most interesting, impactful artists you’ll find anywhere in the country.”
