You Know About Forecastle, Right?

I don’t want to embarrass anyone here, but I was talking to someone who’s lived in Louisville for a long time yesterday about what’s going on this weekend, and this person (who shall remain unnamed) asked me a surprising question when I mentioned that I would probably go see some of the Forecastle Festival.

“What is Forecastle?”

So J.K. McKnight and his merry organizers haven’t managed to reach EVERYONE in town, but the Forecastle Festival is certainly the biggest deal around here this weekend.  They’re expecting a record crowd on the Waterfront of at least 75,000 to see about 60 acts, among them staples of WFPK playlists like Jack White, Beck, Ray LaMontagne and Jason Isbell.

A year ago, I interviewed McKnight as only the 3rd guest on the Rusty Satellite Show. All the positives we mentioned in the show then have only gotten bigger now. You can listen here:

Of course, the music is the main focus. And people like me, who don’t really pay close attention to modern music, haven’t heard of many of the acts. I have seen Isbell and expect to see that show. There’s an app for that — on which you can listen to Forecastle acts on your mobile device.

And I wish I had had this answer ready when I got that question about it, from the websiteA FORECASTLE IS A SUPERSTRUCTURE AT THE BOW OF A SHIP WHERE THE CREW IS HOUSED. HARD AT WORK IN THE UNRULY SEA, IT’S A PLACE WORKERS GATHER AFTER A LONG DAY TO UNWIND. A PLACE WHERE THE PEOPLE COME TOGETHER, FOR ONE WHALE OF A GOOD TIME.

But it’s not all about the music. The Festival is has a growing focus on environmental activism and outdoor recreation.  You can ride your bike in and get valet service.

In short, its something every Louisvillian should know about, and experience for yourself. I’ll see you at the Jason Isbell show.
