LCD Soundsystem, Weezer, Odesza, Cage the Elephant, PJ Harvey and Vince Staples top the initial list of artists who've signed on for the 2017 Forecastle Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. Also on the roster are Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Griz, X Ambassadors and Cashmere Cat.
The three-day festival (June 14-16), which takes place in the 85-acre Waterfront Park on the banks of the Ohio River in downtown Louisville, will celebrate its 15th edition with another one of its typically eclectic lineups, mixing in hip-hop (Run the Jewels, Waka Flocka Flame), indie rock (Friends, Beach Slang) and soul (Charles Bradley and his Extraordinaires).
A number of additional acts will be added in early 2017, with general admission weekend passes available now at ForecastleFest.com.
