The Louisville-based Forecastle Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary this year with a three-day event featuring some of the best and most popular acts in rock, pop, funk and electronic music.
Chaotic riffs and thunderous drumming reigned supreme as the Rockstar Mayhem Festival descended upon Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.
The tenth annual Forecastle Festival took place July 13-15 at Waterfront Park in downtown Louisville, Kentucky.
Festival International de Louisiane is a springtime music festival in Downtown Lafayette, La. bringing talented artists from all over the world to a five-day free festival.
The description in the festival program looks intriguing: “Starting from an underground tavern in Athens, 1923, the band embarks on a journey across Time and Culture, riding the waves of music. Boundaries dissolve as Eastern melodies weave in and out of Western harmonies.”
Twangfest 16 continued at the Duck Room Thursday night with a diverse lineup of crowd favorites.

Initially a tribute to the late Merle Watson, Doc Watson's son and musical partner, MerleFest has evolved into one of the biggest festivals of its kind, on par only with Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in San Francisco, both of which draw between 70 and 80,000 people each year.
