Forecastle 2012 Day 1 Photo Update / live stream details


Things got off to a slow start yesterday (7/13/12) as Forecastle 2012 got underway in Louisville’s Waterfront Park.

Featuring performances by a vast array of artists that spanned multiple genres, the event — that is back after taking a year off in 2011 — gave clear representation of the diverse palates of its curators, My Morning Jacket. 

With approximately 35,000 tickets sold, Forecastle representatives expect attendance to swell today as curators and Louisville natives, My Morning Jacket top off the day’s billed performances.


  • Amongst many others, Saturday’s lineup will feature performances by Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Justin Townes Earle, Dr. Dog, Real Estate, Galactic, Futurebirds, Neko Case, Bonobo, Girl Talk and as mentioned above, My Morning Jacket.
