Waterfront Park

Quite simply, Louisville’s Waterfront Park is one of the most stunning urban landscapes to host a major music festival. Designated as one of the Top Ten Urban Parks in the nation by the Urban Land Institute, it attracts more than 1.5 million visitors per year. And for Forecastle, the setting along the Ohio River, with the Louisville skyline as a stunning backdrop, it makes for an unbelievable visual experience, no matter who’s on stage. Each day of the festival, gates will open at 12:30PM, while the music will begin at 1:30PM and conclude at 11:00PM.
