LOUISVILLE – Mark your calendar, the Forecastle Festival has announced the dates for its 2013 festival.

The three-day music, arts and activism festival will take place July 12-14 in Louisville’s Waterfront Park.

Forecastle was met with rave reviews in 2012 with its 10th anniversary show. More than 30,000 fans from 48 states and seven countries enjoyed performances by more than 65 artists, according to a press release.

Louisville’s own My Morning Jacket headlined the event, along with Bassnectar, Wilco, Sleigh Bells, and Flying Lotus.

For 2013, the festival will continue to boast the hallmarks of Kentucky culture with an expanded Kentucky Bourbon Lodge and Louisville Village, while adding a variety of other experiences to highlight the best of the Bluegrass State. It will also mark the third year of the partnership between The Forecastle Festival and AC Entertainment.
