The Forecastle Festival rounds out the lineup for its 2015 event with the additions of critically acclaimed Philly rockers The War on Drugs, blues-infused singer-songwriter ZZ Ward, genre-bending experimentalist Robert DeLong, and punk-rockers-turned-Latin-balladeers Mariachi El Bronx, who join Sam Smith, My Morning Jacket, Widespread Panic, Modest Mouse and more than 50 acts. The three-day music celebration, now in its 13th year, will take place July 17–19, 2015, at the award-winning Waterfront Park, a sweeping green space on the banks of the Ohio River framed by the skyline of downtown Louisville.
The festival also welcomes Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Chris Stapleton, Lower Dens, Lizzo, Gabriel Garzón-Montano, Dr. Dundiff & Friends, and Fat Tony to the 2015 lineup in addition to the return of ASCAP Hours featuring an exciting mix of artists on the rise including Earl Burrows and Jeffrey James.
