Louisville’s Forecastle Fest had a pretty epic 2019, boasting memorable performances from favorites like The Killers, Anderson .Paak, Maggie Rogers, CHVRCHES, Nelly, and Yungblud, easily ranking among our favorite fests of last season. One of our favorite regional events, bar none, we look forward to making the trek each and every year, and as the 2020 festival landscape begins to take shape, we’ve been eagerly counting down the days until Forecastle’s return, July 17-19, for its 18th year!
Bonnaroo, Shaky Knees, Hangout Fest, and some other regional outings have already revealed their 2020 lineups, and though announcement timeframes all around tend to shift a bit from year to year, we’ve learned that Forecastle is poised to reveal theirs on Wednesday, Feb. 12– almost exactly the same day as last year’s announcement.
Though, some years, we see a lot of overlap in festival performers, 2020 has, so far, seen more variance between events than usual, leaving the guessing game for who might show up at Forecastle this year almost impossible. You can be sure that it’ll be as cool and well-balanced as always though, and shortly after this year’s performers are unveiled, tickets will go on sale right here!
Keep an eye on the site for an update next week, and until then, watch a recap of last year’s stellar event below!
