    Default Forecastle Festival-My Morning Jacket headlining/curating 7/13-7/15

    January 24, 2012
    Dear Forecastle Travelers ~

    The Forecastle Festival is thrilled to announce that My Morning Jacket will headline and assist in curating the festival’s 10th Anniversary. The 3-day event will take place July 13 – 15, 2012, at Louisville’s scenic, award-winning Waterfront Park.

    My Morning Jacket, whose original members hail from Louisville and currently reside in the city, will headline Saturday night, and will collaborate with producers on festival sights, sounds and experiences, as well as charitable aspects of the event. Celebrating its tenth year, the festival will pay homage to its past, present, and future, highlighting Forecastle’s maritime theme while celebrating the very best of Louisville and Kentucky.

    Over 75 additional artists will be announced in the upcoming weeks, including the Friday and Sunday night headliners. Separately ticketed late-night events will take place aboard The Ship (Belle of Louisville) as well as at the newly renovated Ice House.

    Tickets will go on-sale January 27 at 12pm (EST), including a limited quantity of specially-priced, $100 weekend passes. They can be purchased online at forecastlefest.com. Once this quantity is sold out, tickets will continue to be available at the next level ticket price. Travel packages will also be available, including accommodations at The Galt House – the festival’s official, waterfront hotel. For those who wish to dock up for the weekend, VIP “Captain’s Club” boat slips will also be available.

    The event will mark the second partnership between The Forecastle Festival and AC Entertainment, producers of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Moogfest and more than 750 concerts and events throughout the country.

    This could be a trip worth taking: side action would include bourbon, the Louisville slugger factory and museum, and more bourbon.

    Pretty decent line-up! Wish Wilco was at Pitchfork Maybe there will be some crossovers with this fest and Pitchfork since it is on the same weekend and not too far from each other. I can see artists/bands like Flying Lotus, Beach House, Washed Out, Atlas Sound, Sleigh Bells, Tanlines, Real Estate, Atmosphere and etc playing both fest.

    It's kind of frustrating actually. Put this and Pitchfork together and you have one really great festival. Shit, even just trade Bassnectar for GY!BE and this festival would be well worth it. But neither is quite good enough separately to justify the travel + expenses for me.

    I'm considering this festival. I think it's a great lineup. I'm just not sure I can make the investment. It would be spendy with everyting else I have planned. This blows away P4k IMO for my tastes.

    Actually, if anyone is interested in going and splitting a room and car rental, let me know. The cost is all that is holding me back at the moment.
