Enjoy a new photo feature presented by guest photographer Ryan Armbrust as he recently visited the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, Kentucky on his home turf featuring Outcast, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Jack White, Twenty One Pilots, and over 60 other acts. One of BTS’s early contributors had the pleasure of talking with and featuring some Armbrust‘s work in 2010, so be sure to scope that if you missed it.
As for the photos and performances featured below- critics have hailed the 2014 edition of the Forecastle Festival as one of the most successful large-scale festivals of 2014. Seeing over 60,000 people in two days, Louisville’s’ Courier-Journal commented “..found its sweet spot in 2014, delivering a seamless event that was notable as much for what didn’t happen as what did. Here’s what did happen: Nearly 60 bands played routinely outstanding sets for a shade more than 60,000 people in Waterfront Park Friday through Sunday. Headliners Outkast, Jack White, Beck and The Replacements all gave memorable performances that often bordered on thrilling, and many of the second-tier acts were right on their heels. Here’s what didn’t happen: excessively long lines, late starts, logistical nightmares. It was like a giant backyard cookout with 60,000 close friends and the best mix tape ever.”
Without further ado enjoy an exclusive batch of Forecastle Festival photos by Ryan Armbrust.
