The Forecastle Festival will return in 2016 led by Americana heavyweights The Avett Brothers; Grammy-nominated Southern rockers Alabama Shakes; indie stalwart Ryan Adams; and alt-rock luminaries Death Cab for Cutie. The three-day music celebration, now in its 14th year, will take place July 15–17, 2016, at the award-winning Waterfront Park, situated on 85 acres of green space on the banks of the Ohio River framed by the skyline of downtown Louisville.

Cincinnati natives Walk The Moon bring their melodic pop-rock to the Waterfront, while three-time Grammy Award-winner Ben Harper reunites with his band The Innocent Criminals in support of their first album in eight years, Call It What It Is, out April 8, 2016. Others notable acts includeGrouplove, Brandi Carlile, Gary Clark Jr., Big Gigantic, Glass Animals, Dr. Dog, Blackberry Smoke, Sylvan Esso and more. A full list of confirmed artists from the initial lineup can be found below. Additional artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Weekend passes are currently on sale through ForecastleFest.com and all Ticketmaster outlets. VIP experiences and payment plan options are also now available. Full details can be found at ForecastleFest.com.

Often referred to at the fourth headliner, Forecastle’s Bourbon Lodge and Gonzo Bar will return in 2016 with a full lineup of bourbon offerings from across the Commonwealth, bourbon education, bourbon-inspired culinary experience and much more. Bourbon Lodge memberships can be purchased in advance through Ticketmaster for $25 plus applicable fees.

Back again, the Kentucky Landing will feature a variety of local craft beers, food trucks, businesses and a selection of non-profit organizations and craft vendors selling Kentucky-made goods.

Highlighted in Rolling Stone as “One of the Coolest Festivals in America” and acclaimed by Garden and Gun as the “Greatest Show for Earth,” the Forecastle Festival has evolved from a small community event into one of the country’s premier festival destinations.

Forecastle’s built environment presents Louisville’s rich culture through equal parts music, art and activism®. Beyond the first-class musical lineup, the event showcases the city’s burgeoning culinary and arts scene, Kentucky’s unique bourbon heritage and more. Sustainability and conservation initiatives are guided by the festival’s 501c3 non-profit organization, the Forecastle Foundation.

Artist additions, single day tickets and late-night show tickets, along with the daily schedule of artists, late-night events and other activities will be available in 2016.
