The 7th annual Forecastle Festival takes to the road in April, visiting cities throughout the Midwest to spread the gospel of music, art, and activism.  Forecastle will have a presence at a series of events within the festival’s participating markets, designed to promote and network with potential festival goers and industry professionals alike. 

The festival and symposium, named “One of the Top 101 Things to Do in America” by SPIN Magazine, will be held July 25th – 27th on Louisville’s Riverfront Belvedere, and Forecastle founder and producer JK McKnight views the outreach as an essential component of the festival’s continuing growth.

"The goal of Forecastle is a complete Music.Art.Activism Midwest conference. With ten cities participating equally in the 2008 event, the spring tour offers us a chance to reach people on a grassroots level, raising awareness of one of the most unique, fastest-growing festivals in the country,” he said.

4/05 - Lexington, KY - Beaux Arts Ball

4/07 - Bloomington, IN - Okkervil River @ the Buskirk Chumley Theater
