Forecastle 2017 is right around the corner, and Louisville Public Media is celebrating with 40 Days of Forecastle. Over the next 40 days, we’ll be covering the Forecastle Festival from all angles — playlists, artist interviews, city guides, behind-the-scenes stories, and a whole lot more. WFPK’s 40 Days of Forecastle is made possible by Kiel Thomson Company and Spalding University.
From musical legends (Robert Plant) to once-in-a-lifetime reunions (The Replacements) to then-unnamed phenoms (Run the Jewels, who appeared simply as Killer Mike and El-P), Forecastle has played host to many memorable musical moments. Today we’re taking a walk down memory lane by revisiting some of the moments that remind us why Forecastle is more than just another music festival.
