Though Pitchfork may grab the majority of festival headlines this weekend, Forecastle is holding its own 300 miles south with a hell of a lot more bourbon. The Louisville staple has remained strong since 2002, inviting acts that hold every connotation of stadium rock while also endorsing environmentalism by hosting NGOs and sustaining its own NGO, the Forecastle Foundation. Yesterday witnessed that bombast with sweaty, titanic performances from Cage the Elephant, ODESZA, Mondo Cozmo and more. Photographer Cortney Armitage captured the sweltering day in the gallery above. Check back tomorrow and Sunday for more coverage of Forecastle Festival 2017.
