No Country’s Guide to Forecastle 2019: 10 Can’t Miss Sunday Performers

Forecastle19Sun-620

This weekend, July 12-14, 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 tens 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 want to help you prepare with daily rundowns of our can’t-miss acts. Head here for day tickets or weekend passes if you still need ’em, and check out our 10 most-anticipated Sunday Forecastle performances below (and be sure to peep our Friday and Saturday picks as well)!

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss An Evening with Dawes | Feb. 9 & 10 @ The Ryman Auditorium

Dawes2018-620

No strangers to Music City (in the past two years alone they headlined The Ryman three times, played Live on the Green, opened for Kings of Leon at First Tennessee Park, and hosted a special record release show at The Basement East), Los Angeles folk rockers Dawes are continuing their rapid ascent, extending their prolific tour schedule into the new year in support of surprisingly poppy and experimental 2018 effort Passwords. One of the few major acts who managed to play Pilgrimage Fest before it got rained out last fall (making them the inadvertent headliners of the weekend), the band are once again set to play a two-night residency at The Ryman Auditorium, as they have in the past, this Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 9 & 10.

Still billed as part of the “an evening with Dawes” run that’s been going on for a couple years, each super-sized show will feature two sets of songs new and old, and with Dawes’ reputation for their captivating, engaging live presence, they’re sure to be a one of the most memorable performances of the year. A few tickets to both performances are available now here (2/9) and here (2/10) while they last, and we urge you not to wait, so secure your spot then read on for more about the show!
