FC_600wide_June3In a sea of change, the Forecastle Festival is a port-of-call where the world gathers to experience the best in Music, Art, and Activism.

Founded in 2002 by Louisville native JK McKnight, Forecastle has grown from a community event to one of the country’s most anticipated summer festivals, which now draws tens of thousands of fans from across the world to Louisville’s scenic 85-acre Waterfront Park.

In addition to featuring a who’s who of musical acts such as My Morning Jacket, The Black Keys, Bassnectar, the Flaming Lips, Sleater-Kinney, Flying Lotus and The Avett Brothers, Forecastle has consistently promoted local artists as well as focusing on environmental activism and outdoor recreation.

Past Forecastles have featured prominent organizations, industry leaders, and distinguished speakers, such as Christopher Sands and Robert Kennedy Jr.

A celebration of sights, sounds, and sustainability, Forecastle connects travelers North, South, East, and West. Forecastle 2013 on Slacker Radio plays music from the artists playing this year’s Festival including today’s biggest stars and the hottest up-and-coming Indie and Electronic acts taking the stage in Louisville, KY from July 12-14, 2013.
