Coming out of Louisville, KY today was the announcement of this year’s diverse lineup for the 2014 Forecastle Festival. This years headliners are Outkast, Jack White, and Beck. The under card for the festival is one of the strongest of the season so far. The recently reunited Replacements, Spoon, Band of Horses, Dwight Yoakam and Gary Clark Jr. are on the bill. A couple of female fronted New York bands – Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings and Lucius, are going to be at the festival in mid-July as well.
Other bands playing the festival include JJ Grey and Mofro, Nickle Creek, Slint, The Black Lips, Local Natives, Reignwolf, and Sharon Von Etten. Last year’s festival got rave reviews from all over the country and this year’s line up looks like it will produce more of the same. Festival tickets go on sale Friday March 7th at Noon, with single day and late night shows happening closer to the festival. Stay tuned as we will update you when both of those are announced.
