Local hero made good, Louisville’s Forecastle takes the classic festival template and gives it a Kentucky spin.
On the edge of the Ohio river, with the Louisville skyline as its backdrop, Forecastle has an enviable natural palette to work with, and the end result has music fans coming back in droves year after year.
Though the headliners are A-list and the setting’s world class, Forecastle sets itself apart by letting a healthy streak of Kentucky show through in everything at the festival – by championing local acts, showcasing food and drink from the bluegrass state (including bourbon, you’ll be glad to hear) and promoting local artists.
Some 95% of the world’s Bourbon is made in Kentucky, so head to the Bourbon Lodge for an experience built entirely around the South’s favourite spirit.
