Less than two months after the Forecastle Festival packed up its sails and headed out of Louisville’s Waterfront Park, it has announced next year’s concert dates.

The three-day art, music and activism festival will return to Louisville’s Waterfront Park for its 12th iteration on July 18, 19 and 20.

This year’s dates will coincide with the birthday of Kentucky’s native son, Hunter S. Thompson, who was born in Louisville on July 18, 1937, according to a press release from Forecastle Festival.

“As Hunter S. Thompson said, ‘buy the ticket, take the ride,’” said Forecastle Founder JK McKnight in the release. “We have much in store to make next year’s festival a ride to remember.”

An exclusive pre-sale, as well as travel packages with the Brown Hotel, Seelbach Hilton and Courtyard Marriott Downtown, will be available in late 2013. The festival lineup, and more exciting details, will be revealed early next year, according to the release.

Specially priced hotel room rates are now available through
