No Country’s Guide to Forecastle 2017: Nashville Roundup

ForecastleNashville-2017

This weekend, July 14-16, 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 performers for 2017. Head here for day tickets or weekend passes if you still need ’em, and we’ll see you on the waterfront!

[TICKET GIVEAWAY] This Wild Life w/ Dryjacket & A Will Away | July 23 @ The High Watt

ThisWildLife2017-620

By virtue of being an acoustic duo in the emo/indie punk space usually reserved for gang vocals and power chords, California’s This Wild Life are already something of an anomaly, but with their latest LP, Low Tides, they prove even more resistant to being put in a box. Out in support of their latest, the band return to Nashville July 23 to headline The High Watt, and have tapped two very interesting rising full-band acts, Dryjacket and A Will Away, for support. Tickets are still available right here, but we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan! Read on for more about the show, and enter for a chance to win below!
