    AC Entertainment and The Forecastle Festival are excited to announce the initial lineup for the 10th anniversary of Forecastle. The three-day event will take place July 13-15, 2012 at Louisville's scenic, award-winning Waterfront Park. The final Forecastle lineup will total more than 70 bands on five stages. As previously announced, Saturday headliners My Morning Jacket are collaborating with the producers on the sights, sounds and experiences of the entire festival weekend.

    The 2012 event marks the 10th year of the festival, which began in 2002 as a small, free outdoor neighborhood event celebrating the Louisville music community. Since then, it has evolved into the one of the country's premier multi-day summer festival destinations focusing on music, art and environmental activism.

    This year's lineup serves as a testament to the festival's tremendous growth. Bassnectar and Wilco will join My Morning Jacket as headliners of the three-day event which will also feature: Andrew Bird, Girl Talk, Atmosphere, Neko Case, Sleigh Bells, A-Trak, Clutch, Flying Lotus, Galactic, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Dean Wareham Plays Galaxie 500, and many others.

    "We are super duper excited to announce and be a part of the spectacular line up for the 10th anniversary of Forecastle in our hometown!" says Jim James of My Morning Jacket. "Be on the lookout for further announcements and some special surprises. It's gonna be a sweet time...Christmas in July!"
