While Baller ATX has its roots planted in Austin, TX, there are events around the country that speak to the Austin spirit and vibe. One of these is Forecastle, which has rocked the gorgeous Waterfront Park in downtown Louisville, KY for almost 15 years, and will take place this Friday, July 15-Sunday, July 17. Your very own Baller ATX staff will be traveling to Kentucky this weekend and bringing you coverage on all things Forecastle!
Beginning as a small neighborhood event in 2002, focusing on music, art, and conservationism – Forecastle has grown into one of the largest music festivals in the country, and draws tens of thousands attendees from all over the world. This year’s headliners include The Avett Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Ryan Adams, and Death Cab for Cutie. Austin’s own Shakey Graves and Ghostland Observatory will also be lending their distinctively-Austin sounds to the musical magic filling Waterfront Park this weekend.
Featuring local eats, a Bourbon Lodge, and the Hunter S. Thompson-inspired Gonzo Bar, Forecastle’s unique style makes it a can’t-miss for festival lovers. We can’t wait to bring you stories and photos from the weekend, so stay tuned to Baller ATX for more!
