Forecastle Festival 2016 Lineup Announced

The Waterfront in Louisville is set to be rocking on July 15-17 this summer at Forecastle Festival! Hard hitting headliners The Avett Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Ryan Adams and Death Cab for Cutie have been announced as well as a slew of other outstanding artists (including Cincy’s own Walk The Moon). And – there is more to be announced! 

What is a Forecastle?
A Forecastle is a superstructure at the bow of a ship where the crew is housed. Hard at work in the unruly sea, it’s a place workers gather after a long day to unwind. A place where the people come together, for one whale of a good time.
