Arts and Culture

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.”

Headliners of this year’s festival include LCD Soundsystem, Weezer and Odesza. The three-day music celebration will take place July 14-16, 2017 at Waterfront Park.
