Forecastle FestivalÂ set sail on Friday, July 12 in downtown Louisville, Kentucky with festival founder JK McKnight and partner Ashley Capps, one of the founders of Bonnaroo, at the wheel steering us towards new musical exploration.
Under beautiful blue skies, acts like The Pimps of Joytime, rising local stars Houndmouth, music legend Bob Mould from punk rock icons Husker DuÂ andÂ Night Beds, rapper Big Boi (still nursing an injured ankle from his Summer Camp set, but giving a wild show sitting in his throne), Old Crow Medicine Show, and Young The Giant brought the afternoon crowd a wide variety of sights and sounds to savor.
Jam band super stars The String Cheese Incident have taken over the host band duties for the weekend, and gave fans old and new an energetic, fun-filled set to close out the main stage for the night.
Here”s a gallery of shots to whet your appetite for our coming review â€“ check back tomorrow for shots from day 2 from editor and senior photographer Rex Thomson of Rex-A-Vision.
