The Forecastle Festival has added over a dozen acts to its three-day music celebration, including electro-funk duo Ghostland Observatory, Dan Auerbach-fronted The Arcs, Americana genre benders Pokey LaFarge, beatmaster Baauer and more. Now in its 14th year, Forecastle Festival will take place July 15-17, 2016, at Louisville’s Waterfront Park.
Of note, Teddy Abrams, Music Director for the Louisville Orchestra, joins the lineup and will curate a special Louisville-centric showcase with artist collaborations, orchestral arrangements and more. The youngest music director in the orchestra’s 78-year history, Abrams has received international acclaim as both as a composer and director, and a champion for making symphonic music accessible to the masses.
Other additions include Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Hudson Mohawke, Alunageorge, Tourist, Heartless Bastards, Patrick Watson, Sarah Jarosz, Banners, Madisen Ward & The Mama Bear, River Tiber, Seratones, Black Pistol Fire, Joan Shelley, Future Thieves, and Myzica.
