Can't Miss Summer Music Festivals of 2012

Whether your beat is electronic or alternative, there’s a festival catering to you. Here’s the scoop on the summer’s top ten music fests. Our advice? Pray for sunshine.

Forecastle Festival - Louisville, KY; July 13-15

Once a grassroots festival that cost $500 to produce, Louisville’s premier summer event, Forecastle Festival, will take place in Waterfront Park and is celebrating its tenth anniversary after a hiatus in 2011.

The ultra-cool thing about this year’s Forecastle Fest is that it's being curated by My Morning Jacket, who will also headline the 3-day event with Bassnectar and Wilco, and feature Andrew Bird, Girl Talk, Neko Case, Atmosphere, Clutch, Sleigh Bells, Galactic, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and others.
