The Black Keys are an early standout

LOUISVILLE — The Forecastle Festival announced the lineup for its 11th annual arts, music and activism festival.

The initial lineup also features The Flaming Lips, Alabama Shakes, Animal Collective, Old Crow Medicine Show, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Big Boi, Matt & Kim, Purity Ring and more than 50 other acts.

Jim James, who is the frontman for My Morning Jacket and headlined the 10th anniversary festival, will return with his new solo project.

In addition to performances at Waterfront Park, the Forecastle Festival will feature late night shows on the historic Belle of Louisville steamboat and other landmark locations throughout downtown Louisville, according to a press release.
