Forecastle Festival 2017 is fast approaching! The festival is known for its artistic atmosphere and great music acts. Taking the stage this year includes the likes of LCD Soundsystem, old-school favorites Weezer, Odesza, Cage the Elephant and the uber cool PJ Harvey. We’ve put together some top tips to help you make the most of the festival weekend.

1. Get app-ready

You can download the Forecast app onto your phone through the app store. The app includes stage times, lineup and a site map.

2. Cycle

Festivalgoers are encouraged to cycle and there is sufficient bike storage on site. Festival organizers will offer a bike valet service for attendees arriving on bike.

3. Be stuff-free

You can rent on-site lockers, complete with charging station, for $20 per day, or $50 for the weekend. Book your Forecastle Festival locker in advance.

4. Know your ticket type

Re-entry to the festival site is for festival goers with weekend passes only. There is no re-entry for day pass holders.

5. Parking

If you’re driving to the festival site at Waterfront Park, be careful where you park. While there are plenty of public areas to park, it’s  worth checking the Louisville parking map to make sure you don’t get slapped with a fine for parking in the wrong place.

6. Shuttle

If you’d prefer an easy ride, you can sign up for the Forecastle Festival shuttle service and book a shuttle to take you from your home or hotel, direct to the festival site.
