One of Kentuckiana’s biggest music festivals returns to the Louisville waterfront park this weekend. The 16th annual Forecastle Festival is bringing big names to town, like Chris Stapleton, Modest Mouse, Jimmy Eat World, Arcade Fire and a whole lot more. While festival crews are spending the week getting things ready on the waterfront, Lauren Hendricks and Mo McKnight Howe from Forecastle Festival joined us to explain that it’s not just about the music. The Forecastle Foundation works year-round to help protect some of the earth’s most bio-diverse hotspots. Forecastle Festival starts this Friday, July 13, 2018 through Sunday, July 15, 2018 at Louisville Waterfront Park.
