Fans will have an opportunity to support the home of Forecastle Festival as they purchase their 2020 tickets, playing an important role in protecting Waterfront Park, the 85-acre green space adjacent to the downtown area of Louisville, Kentucky and the Ohio River, for many years to come.
Beyond the stellar music lineup, “America’s Native Spirit”—Kentucky bourbon—will once again shine as a headliner all its own. New this year, the Forecastle Bourbon Experience is expanding to the masses, allowing all Forecastle patrons the opportunity to interact with the full array of offerings with no additional membership fee or minimum commitment. The Bourbon Experience will be held in a shaded area with relaxing lounge areas and seating, intimate workshops, interactive experiences and direct access to bourbon distillers and ambassadors. More information on the Forecastle Bourbon Experience will be shared in the coming months.
