Start thinking summer, people. The 15th Forecastle festival in Louisville has just announced its “first wave” of acts for next year, a roster that includes Brooklyn dance rock/electronica troupe LCD Soundsystem, pop stylists Weezer and the electro pop duo Odesza.
Want more? Then plan on sets by Bowling Green-bred rock renegades Cage the Elephant, British pop-punk experimentalist PJ Harvey, soul/Americana sensations Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats, roots rock champion JD McPherson, veteran soul/funk brigade Charles Bradley and the Extraordinaires, Christian rockers Needtobreathe, rock/folk/Americana favorite Conor Oberst and Louisville’s own Twin Limb.
Forecastle will run July 14-16, 2017 at downtown Louisville’s 85 acre Waterfront Park. General admission weekend passes are on sale, just in time for holiday shopping needs, at $149.50 excluding ticketing fees. For more ordering information, go to forecastlefest.com.
Further performance bookings, schedules and single day ticket sales will be announced early in 2017.
