What do Cheese, Beds, Crows, Lips, Lipps, and Shovels all have in common? Well the readers and followers of Vinyl Magazine might be finding out sooner than later as I set out this weekend to cover the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY.
Forecastle, which in essence reminds me of Athen’s very own AthFest (which as I have worked for the past two Athfests in many capacities, a very delayed AthFest review should be and possibly will be posted here, but that’s for another time and place…), was founded in 2002 and has grown immensely. In addition to featuring a who’s who of musical acts such as The Black Keys, Widespread Panic, My Morning Jacket, Bassnectar, the Flaming Lips, Band of Horses, Sleater-Kinney, and The Avett Brothers, Forecastle has consistently promoted local artists as well as focusing on environmental activism and outdoor recreation.
As I set out on my journey make sure to follow Vinyl Magazine on Twitter and Instagram (thisisvinyl) (and Facebook too! because who doesn’t like to be LIKED on Facebook) to get full festival coverage. And if you will be partaking in festival festivities in Louisville this weekend maybe you’ll find yourself featured in our Festival Style Watch.
So keep an eye out festival lovers…This Is Vinyl.
