When: July 18th-20th
Where: Louisville, Kentucky
Why Go: As the headliners – Jack White, Beck, Outkast – suggest, Forecastle is a festival for alt-country and Americana fans who aren't afraid of a little pop. That perspective makes the lineup here relatively unique, with artists like Dwight Yoakam, Sharon Jones, Hayes Carll, Action Bronson and Waxahatchee all performing on the shore of the Ohio River.
15 Must-See Acts: Outkast, Jack White, Beck, Spoon, Against Me!, Yoakam, Jones, Carll, Waxahatchee, Gary Clark Jr., Hurray for the Riff Raff, Jason Isbell, the Replacements, Jenny Lewis, Charli XCX
