Forecastle Fest keeping people cool in summer heat

The Forecastle line-up draws thousands to the Waterfront, and organizers are committed to keeping patrons safe.

This year’s festival is expected to tie the record for the hottest day in Forecastle history.

Organizers say they’ve got more shade, more air conditioning and more free water than years past.

“We’ve opened up more treed areas within the party cove and the Kentucky Landing for more people to grab shade, more water stations,” Jeff Cueller of AC Entertainment said. “We’ve brought back the Yacht Club which you have the air conditioned married miller out there for people who are members of the Yacht Club.”

There’s also air conditioning in the Bourbon Lounge and VIP Lounge, but they ensure there’s access to A-C, regardless of your ticket type.

There are still some tickets available online for Saturday and Sunday.
