The 2022 festival will bring not only new timing, but a reimagined fan experience. The Mast Stage will continue to offer sweeping views of the Ohio River, cast against the Louisville skyline.  Now located on the Wharf, the Ocean Stage will be fully tented, creating an immersive musical experience. A reshaped festival site will improve fan mobility, ensuring patrons never miss a minute of their favorite artist or the chance to discover something new.


The festival will continue its support of the Forecastle Foundation, the 501(c)3 that works year round to preserve and protect threatened ecosystems in Kentucky and around the world. From each weekend pass purchased, $3 will benefit the foundation’s work and partners. A portion of funds raised will support tornado relief efforts in Central and Western Kentucky. Since its inception in 2010, the Forecastle Foundation has contributed more than $700,000 to local and global conservation projects and helped protect and preserve more than 51,000 acres of land and more than 300 miles of waterways.
