Louisville’s Forecastle Fest has added a bunch of new acts to the lineup, including Pokey LaFarge, The Arcs, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, AlunaGeorge, White Denim, Hudson Mohawke, Heartless Bastards and more. Tickets for the whole fest, which also includes previously-announced headliners like Death Cab For Cutie, Alabama Shakes, The Avett Brothers and Ryan Adams, are still on sale. Check out the full Forecastle lineup below.
Speaking of the recently-hacked Death Cab for Cutie, the band recently played Mexico’s Todos Santos Fest, which is run by R.E.M.’s Peter Buck. During their festival-closing set they were joined by Peter and his R.E.M. bandmate Mike Mills for a rendition of the band’s 1986 single “Fall on Me.” You can check out video of that R.E.M. cover, below.
Death Cab play NYC’s Governors Ball in May.
