forecastle2.jpgFounded in 2002, the Forecastle Festival is an annual gathering equal parts Music, Art, and Activism. A symposium for musicians, artists, and environmentalists, Forecastle connects the progressive Midwest. The staff of Paste Magazine has selected Forecastle as one of the “Top 33” festivals in the country and we’re lucky enough to have it right here in our own backyard!

The Festival takes place July 25-27 at The Belvedere (5th and Main). This year’s line-up features Perry Farrell, Tortoise, Dr. Dog, Gran Bel Fischer, The Del McCoury Band and many more! Saturday will focus more on the alternative scene while Sunday features more roots based artists. Tickets go on this Wednesday April 30th. Keep listening to WFPK for your chance to “Beat the Box Office”!
