I always love reading the comments when a music festival is announced. The subjective nature of music raises its head and you have groups of people who love the lineup fighting those who thought "last year was much better". After seeing the first round of artists announced for Louisville's FORECASTLE FESTIVAL 2014...I don't see, even with taste being subjective, how anyone can't be blown away by the perfect lineup assembled here. Outkast, Jack White, Beck, The Replacements, and hometown heroes SLINT!!!!!!! This is a big moment for Louisville and for those who have never visited this great city, here is your excuse to hit our beautiful waterfront, grab a few bourbons, and experience one of the best weekends of music ever offered up.
