No Forecastle Festival in 2011

On a slow sports day….

This story is a bit dated as the announcement came a couple weeks ago, but it is still relevant for this edition of “Local Buzz” Louisville’s biggest music festival known as Forecastle will not happen in 2011. JK McKnight and his festival have just joined forces with AC Entertainment. AC Entertainment is the producer of the Bonnaroo Music Festival and Moogfest. This is a huge bummer to those awaiting a lineup of bands coming to Louisville’s Belvedeer. Though we do have to make it through this summer without Forecastle, this is actually great news for Louisville Music fans. 2012 will be the first year Forecastle will return to Louisville’s river side and I fully expect the festival to double in size. More bands, bigger names, bigger stages, and just a better quality festival for us Louisvillians. Now keep this in mind…There is word of a large-scale “Halfway To Forecastle” concert which is rumored to take place somewhere in downtown Louisville. This could possibly quench our thirst for some a good show in Louisville. As a music fan I am ecstatic about this news and cant wait to see what happens to this festival which was built from the ground up right here in our town.
