Avett Brothers, Tyler Childers, Midland Set for 2019 Forecastle Festival

The Avett Brothers, the Killers and Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals will headline July’s Forecastle Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. Set for July 12th through 14th, the 17th edition of the event — one of the best curated and well-planned of the Southern festivals — announced its full lineup Monday morning.

Along with the trio of headliners, Forecastle 2019 includes high-profile sets from Tyler Childers, Maggie Rogers, Portugal. The Man, Judah & the Lion, Moon Taxi and First Aid Kit. Country trio Midland is also on the bill, along with Americana artists Anderson East, Liz Cooper & the Stampede and Dawes.

While last year’s lineup leaned toward Americana — Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell were among the big draws — this year’s installment features a number of both indie and alt-rock acts, from the Artisanals to the Killers.

Held at Waterfont Park on the banks of the Ohio River in downtown Louisville, Forecastle also highlights Kentucky cuisine and spirits, particularly bourbon. The Bourbon Lodge offers a vast array of local whiskeys, while the Gonzo Bar nods to Rolling Stone journalist Hunter S. Thompson.

Tickets for Forecastle Festival go on sale Wednesday, February 13th.
