Louisville, Kentucky’s Forecastle Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2012, and it’s teaming with one of the city’s most celebrated outfits to assist in the festivities. According to an issued press release, My Morning Jacket will both headline and aid in curating this year’s festival.

“The stars have aligned in such a way that not only allows My Morning Jacket to headline on Saturday night, but to collaborate on many aspects of the festival as well,” said JK McKnight, Forecastle Founder and Director of National Partnerships for AC Entertainment, in an issued statement. “From booking bands and curating late night shows to choosing philanthropic partners and shining a light on Louisville’s special offerings, together we’re sure to craft the best Forecastle experience ever. There’s certainly no group I would rather share this moment with than them.”

The festival’s full lineup will be announced in the coming weeks. Specially priced weekend passes will go on sale Friday, January 27th at Noon ET. After the initial allotment is depleted, tickets will be available at their regular price. In addition, separetly ticketed late night after-parties will take place on the Belle of Louisville steamboat and at the newly renovated Ice House.
