    After last year's lineup, we were a little unsure of what to expect for Forecastle 2016, but we're pretty #OnBoard with what they have for us this year. A few headliners from previous years, a few Louisville frequents, and a few bands we've been dying to see live: 2016 is already looking like a great year.

    Here's who they've announced so far:

    The Avett Brothers (Here's our coverage from their three-night stay at the Louisville Palace. The band also played Forecastle in 2014)

    Alabama Shakes (Played Forecastle 2013)

    Ryan Adams (Stopped by Iroquois Amphitheatre in April 2015)

    (Couldn't resist putting something from the superior version of 1989.)

    Death Cab For Cutie (Cancelled a show at Iroquois this year)

    Walk The Moon (Played Forecastle 2012)

    Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals 


    Brandi Carlile (Played the WFPK Rock-N-Stroll back in 2013.)
