From July 13-15th, Forecastle Festival will celebrate its tenth birthday at Waterfront Park in Louisville, KY. However, prior to the weekend’s festivities, Purity Ring and Dean & Britta will head an official kickoff party presented by Consequence of Sound. The 21+ event takes place on Thursday, July 12th at Louisville’s Club 116 and tickets priced at $22 will go on sale via the festival’s official website this Saturday, May 19th at noon EST.
But, wait, that’s not the only soiree happening down in Louisville over the weekend. On Saturday, July 14th, the Belle of Louisville – yep, that’s a steamboat – will play host to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band featuring special appearances by members of My Morning Jacket. This all-ages event starts at midnight and goes into the early morning. Tickets will cost you $50.00, due to the intimate space, and those also go on-sale this Saturday at noon EST. For every ticket purchased, a portion will be donated to the Center for Women and Families, a Louisville non-profit dedicated to helping victims of intimate partner abuse or sexual violence.
Forecastle Festival runs July 13-15th at Waterfront Park in Louisville, Kentucky. Single-day, three-day, and VIP passes are now available via the festivals website. Also, stay tuned for details on Friday’s after-party on the Belle, in addition to Saturday’s at Club 116.
