Forecastle, one of Kentucky's most popular music festivals, is coming back to Louisville after a two-year absence. It will return to Waterfront Park from May 27–29, 2022.
The festival didn’t happen in 2020 or 2021. Last year, it “took a pause,” as organizers called it, like other Louisville festivals Hometown Rising and Bourbon & Beyond. But next year, it’ll be back in full force — and Louisville’s hometown hero Jack Harlow will be headlining.
The rapper dropped the announcement at his Louisville Palace show last night, where he also gave out free tickets to the festival.
Unfortunately, the Festival has not yet released the list of other acts who will be performing, and it’s too early to buy tickets just yet. In the meantime, you can sign up for the mailing list and follow the festival on Facebook and Instagram to get notified as soon as those become available.
