While some music festivals take place in the middle of nowhere, with no real connection to any established music and culture scene, Forecastle has the privilege of being in the heart of downtown Louisville. With that in mind, Forecastle has a history of including local artists in their lineup and this year is no different. Previous Forecastles have seen the likes of A Lion Named Roar, The Pass, Nerves Junior, Wax Fang, Lydia Burrell, Cabin, and Cheyenne Marie Mize grace the stage.
There are a total of six bands that have local representation at Forecastle 2014. Check them out here:
Old Baby: (Friday WFPK Port Stage 1:45-2:45)—dirty, fuzzy, melodic rock’n’roll
JaLin Roze: (Saturday WFPK Port Stage 4:00-4:45)—old school hip-hop
Seluah: (Sunday WFPK Port Stage 3:00-3:45)—spacey guitar rock with haunting vocals
Anwar Sadat: (Saturday Ocean Stage 1:45-2:25)—faster than The Ramones punk rock
Slint: (Saturday Ocean Stage 8:30-9:45)—post rock staples of the late 1980s Louisville punk scene
Spanish Gold: (Saturday Mast Stage 3:30-4-30)—cross genre 1980’s MTV throwback rock, side project of My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan
23 String Band: (Saturday late night show at Headliners)—Bill Monroe five piece bluegrass
