My Morning Jacket, whose original members hail from Louisville and currently reside in the city, will headline Saturday night, and will collaborate with producers on festival sights, sounds and experiences, as well as charitable aspects of the event. Celebrating its tenth year, the festival will pay homage to its past, present, and future, while highlighting the best features of Louisville and Kentucky, in addition to Forecastle’s maritime theme.
Full festival details will be announced in the coming weeks, including a line up featuring additional headliners, and over 75 bands, performing across multiple stages. Separately ticketed late-night after-parties will also take place on the Belle of Louisville and at the newly renovated Ice House.
Tickets will go on-sale January 27, including a limited quantity of specially priced, $100 weekend passes. Once this quantity is sold out, tickets will continue to be available at regular ticket prices. Travel packages will also be available, including accommodations at The Galt House – the festival’s official, waterfront hotel. For those who wish to dock up for the weekend, VIP “Captain’s Club” boat slips will also be available.
