The lineup looks exponentially better than last year, when Sturgill was almost the only act I was interested in!
Agreed that it's way better than last year. But my two favorites on this list: Isbell and The War on Drugs were both just here in December and I went to both. None of the headliners excite me either.
And there's a few others I like and have seen before that I'd see again but a 45 minute festival set may not be worth it.
I didn't go last year either. I'm waiting to see what Bourbon and Beyond will bring this year before I decide on Forecastle. I went last year to B&B and was very happy with the lineup and experience.
