wilco and neko case at the forecastle festival ~ louisville, ky
Posted on 7.16.2012
the ten year old ‘forecastle’ festival was held over this past weekend in louisville, kentucky. the event has grown steadily each year and has hosted a long list of great bands (or at least bands i’d love to see) along with rows of artist, local food, indie brewing co, environmental org booths. this festival is held at waterfront park in louisville, which is situated (as its name implies) on the ohio river – gorgeous vintage bridges in the background. lots of space to spread out (multiple stages allow several music acts to appear simultaneously throughout the day), crowds large and enthusiastic enough to make the event a success but mellow enough to really enjoy everything going on around – and it was all super kid friendly. my daughter had her own little stage ‘act’ of cartwheels, headstands, running leaps over our blanket, etc. running through the evening.
