Kentucky Gets Down: Forecastle in Photos

by Kentucky for Kentucky on

The weekend is here again, y’all, and we’re still riding high from the awesome time we had at Forecastle 2017. We’ve finally scrubbed the last crusty layer of sunscreen and sweat from our skin and are fully rested and rehydrated, but the memories — and the photos — still remain.

 

Check ’em out here. The top gallery is from photographer Ryan K. Morris, and the galleries beneath are from photographers Erick Moore and Savanna Barnett.

 

Forecastle 2017 was epic in every way — from checking out sets by kick-ass Kentuckians like Sturgill Simpson, Cage the Elephant, Twin Limb and up-and-coming Louisville rapper Jack Harlow, to chilling out the Bourbon Lodge (great upgrade this year, Forecastle, btw) and just kicking back and taking it all in.

 

Walking around the grounds, we couldn’t help but appreciate how well run everything was. From plentiful food and drink options, plenty of space to roam and set times that ran like clockwork, everything was top-notch and well thought out. Thanks Forecastle, y’all know how to do Kentucky right.

 

Enjoy these images, y’all. We’ll see ya next year!

 

 

 

There are more barrels of bourbon than people in Kentucky.
