As a member of the staff for forecastle, we want everyone who likes to go to festivals to join us this year and have a great time at a low cost. We have expanded our artist lineup to be more diverse with great bands from a number of different genres. Also, because we don't have on site camping, we dont think that ticket prices should be very high. Hope to see you all there this year at the belvedere! All hail Capt. JK!

It really irks me to no end when people/writers refer to Method Man as the leader of Wu-Tang.

That's such a bad ass line-up, although I heard that Paradigm playing also and don't see them listed. What happened there? You can't do a festival in Louisville and not have the city's best band represented!

looks like a good time.. but am i the only one who finds del mccoury headlining with method man, z-trip, tortoise, the disco biscuits and the new mastersounds a touch out of place? don't get me wrong, i love me some good pickin', but they're definitely kind of a sore thumb among the hip/hop, electronic, funk, indie scene. whatever works.. have fun guys!

Yeah, JazzyBee, I also read on Paradigm's website that they're slated to perform, but it's weird that they're not listed. I hope that's a mistake and that they actually are playing, hopefully right before Tortoise. That would be sick!

Paradigm is playing its even on the forecastle website. I also saw that on their history page where it has the artist that have played it says Band of Horses(2008)

yeah bisco is by far the worst band in the jam scene, so bad that they actually had the privelage of opening for PHIL in 02, maybe they shoved some dildoes up phils ass to get that slot, or maybe they're just that badass....loser.
