The 2019 edition of the Forecastle Festival takes place July 12-14 in Louisville, KY and also includes Portugal. The Man, Noname, Denzel Curry, Tyler Childers, Playboi Carti, Chvrches, First Aid Kit, Hop Along, Andrew Bird, Leikeli47, and more.
Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters, Modest Mouse, The Head and The Heart, Kacey Musgraves, T-Pain, Margo Price, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, White Reaper and more play the 2018 edition of LouFest.
The Milwaukee fest also includes The Weeknd, Spoon, Grizzly Bear, Social Distortion, Pat Benatar, Meat Puppets, Ash, Sugarhill Gang, Jason Isbell, Soccer Mommy, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and much more.
Arctic Monkeys, Jack White, The National, and Vampire Weekend all play different days, so if you were hoping to catch the big indie/alternative rock names and just go one or two days, that's kind of a bummer. St. Vincent the same day as Vampire Weekend is a nice touch though.
