My Morning Jacket - a favorite among past SeatGeek interns - is going home to Louisville for the tenth anniversary of the Forecastle Festival. The event will take place this year from July 13 through July 15 at Waterfront Park in Louisville.
Started in 2002, the Forecastle Festival is a 3 day music, art and environmental awareness event held each year in Louisville, Kentucky. It started off local and has gone on to become a major event featuring big name touring bands and attracting over 30,000 fans each year.
My Morning Jacket, Louisville native sons, will not only be the headlining act on July 14 but will also help the show organizers in building out the band lineup as well as scouting environmental sponsor partners.
