The only thing better than the official arrival of the holiday season is the steady flow of festival lineup announcements. It’s only the first week of December and we’ve already been treated to news that Frank Ocean will be headlining Panorama, Sasquatch, and Hangout Fest and have heard rumors that Beyoncé will be performing at Coachella next year (fingers crossed). Not only all of this news, but apparently, Firefly fans will get to curate the event's 2017 lineup (say what?!). Needless to say, December has been nothing but good to us, and the festival goodness keeps on coming. Adding to the fun, Louisville’s Forecastle Festival has decided to finally join in by unleashing their 2017 lineup.
The fest is celebrating turning 15 by bringing in some major names like LCD Soundsystem, Weezer, and Odesza as their headliners, while smaller names like Coin, LANY, and Beach Slang dot the festival roster. This three-day event will be taking place in Louisville, Kentucky on July 14-16. This is only the initial lineup, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for additional performers being announced in the coming months. We’re not sure about you, but we know which festival we’ll be hanging out at this summer.
Can’t wait until July? Be sure to track these artists on Bandsintown to find out when they’ll be coming to a city near you!
