Forecastle Festival of Louisville Belts Out 2020 Lineup
Jack Johnson, Cage the Elephant & The 1975 to headline
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Feb. 12, 2020) – Fresh off their 2019 nomination for Pollstar’s Music Festival of the Year, the Forecastle Festival will hoist their music flag with American soft rock and singer-songwriter Jack Johnson, along with rock band and Grammy award winning artists Cage the Elephant. Closing out the weekend is pop rock sensation The 1975.
Embarking on its 18th year, the three-day music celebration will take place July 17-19, 2020 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. Festival tickets go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 12 p.m. EST.
As always, Bourbon will play a prominent role at the festival, but new in 2020 is an expansion inviting all festival goers to The Bourbon Experience. Amidst shade and lounge areas, The Bourbon Experience will involve intimate workshops, interactive experiences and direct access to bourbon distillers and ambassadors.
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.
The Forecastle experience presents Louisville’s rich culture through equal parts music, art and activism®. Beyond the rockin’ 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.
