Music festival season is upon us, which means it’s time to plan fun and imaginative looks that are cool and comfortable. Pops of color will help you stand out even in a crowd of thousands. You’ll also need a proper bag for carrying sunscreen and other essentials. Body glitter and over-the-top makeup (don’t forget the setting spray) will finish off the perfect festival look. Stay hydrated, be safe and have the time of your lives, festival-goers.

Anchors Aweigh! It’s Forecastle Season

By Baylee Pendleton

Since its founding in 2002, Forecastle Festival has grown from a Louisville gem to a national celebration. Every summer, folks from all over the country pour into Waterfront Park for three days of music, bourbon and nautical-themed fun. You’ll find everything you’d expect from a music festival (food trucks, promising new artists and bohemian fashion), but what sets Forecastle apart is its tri-fold mission: Music. Art. Activism.

Installations and staging throughout the venue feature work by local and regional artists and usually contribute to a central sustainability theme. The festival’s founder, JK McKnight, started the Forecastle Foundation in 2010 as the activism wing of the event. Since its inception, the foundation has donated more than $400,000 to conservation projects around the world.

And, we can’t forget the music. Over the years, Forecastle’s aquatic stages have been graced by the likes of The Avett Brothers, Sam Smith, Jack White and The Black Keys. This summer’s headliners include Chris Stapleton, Arcade Fire, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Vance Joy and more.

Stay fueled up for the festivities at Kentucky Landing, the food and beverage hotspot with local food trucks, breweries and craft vendors. The Bourbon Lodge has become a central attraction, with bourbon-themed food, activities and brews upon entry.

Louisvillians can jump in early with the Forecastle Kick-Off Party at Against the Grain Brewery on July 12. Grab tickets for this year’s lineup at forecastlefest.com.
