There’s an electricity in the air in Louisville whenever the Forecastle Festival comes around. Not only will Louisville play host to some amazing musicians, but the festival will also include 75,000+ music lovers, with many traveling to our fair city to attend.
Considering how weird and wonderful the Derby City truly is, we wanted to help visitors make the most of their time here. So Yelp and Forecastle teamed up on a special survey — 15 questions for 15 years of Forecastle — to get locals’ picks for where these visitors should eat, drink and play while in town.
And Louisville made their recommendations known!

The survey included a collection of the highest-rated and most-reviewed places in the Louisville area in each category, and to be included, a business must have had at least a four-star rating when the survey was compiled.
