New Artists Announced!
Forecastle is pleased to announce more additions to this year’s lineup!

Reggae standouts Rebelution had the highest debut of their relatively young career this year with Peace of Mind. The massive triple album debuted at #13 on the Billboard 200, reaching #1 on the Reggae and Independent charts. They’ll bring the funk and provide all you Forecastle faithful with a serious dose of rocksteady.      

Singer-songwriter Abigail Washburn is a master of the clawhammer banjo and pairs traditional folk elements with far-flung Eastern sounds. The results feel both strangely familiar yet unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. She’ll be performing with long time collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Kai Welch at Forecastle 2012.

Trixie Whitley combines heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics with towering vocals on her emotionally-charged songs. In 2011, as a member of producer Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub, she captivated audiences worldwide and is currently finishing up her solo debut. Don’t miss your chance to see her on the shores of Waterfront Park.

Headliners of our presenting CoSigns SXSW party, Cloud Nothings join the lineup along with Lower Dens who recently dropped their new album, Nootropics. While Grimes will no longer be joining us due to a scheduling conflict, Kelly Hogan, Keys N Krates and Cherub will be in attendance making some glorious noise!

We’re thrilled about our new additions and that we’ll be seeing them in just over two months! Stay tuned for more additions coming soon, plus kick off and after party details!
