No Country’s Guide to Forecastle 2016: Nashville Roundup

ForecastleNashville-2016

This weekend, July 15-17, marks the return of Louisville’s annual Forecastle Festival, one of our favorite regional musical events. From its humble beginnings in 2002, Forecastle has grown to become a national festival fixture, drawing 10s of thousands of attendees each year to the picturesque downtown Waterfront Park, for three days of music, art, activism, and, of course, Kentucky bourbon. Boasting yet another impressive lineup, this year’s installment, an easy drive for Middle Tennessee residents and a no-brainer for Kentuckians, is one of our most-highly anticipated events of the season, and, per usual, we helped you prepare by ranking our most-anticipated performances of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If, like us, you’re making the pilgrimage from Music City (or if you’re just curious about our vibrant scene), we also wanted to make it easy to give our hometown talent some love, so, below, we’ve put together a list of all of the Nashville (and pseudo-Nasville, in the case of The Arcs and Alabama Shakes) performers for 2016. Head here for day tickets or weekend passes if you still need ’em, and we’ll see you on the waterfront!
