I've been wondering when the 2010 Forecastle Festival was going to announce their line-up, and today I got my answer: MARCH 31, 1:00 p.m.
Cryptic clues have been posted on their website for about 8 or so of the bands they have confirmed. If you're into guessing games and whittling away your time in from of the computer, you can take some stabs and register to win 2 VIP passes to the fest, which takes place in downtown Louisville July 9-11.
Discounted $135 3-day passes are available for a limited time through Ticketmaster here. The password MUSIC will grant the discounted price up until the moment they announce the line-up (again, March 31, 1:00 p.m.), for anyone brave and trusting enough to splurge on a festival without knowing a single band that will perform (hint: last year's headliner's included the Black Crowes, Black Keys and Widespread Panic). At that time, the price will go up to $150 for a 3-day pass; $60/day.
