Forecastle attracts record crowd despite weather evacuation

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- This weekend's Forecastle Festival was a hit, as more than 65,000 people attended the three-day music event.

Festival officials say they don't yet have a final number, but say the crowds were friendly and the vibes were all positive.

That's despite a bit of a rough start Friday night when attendees were evacuated for a short time because of the threat of severe weather.

The delay meant that the performer lineup was adjusted, but just for that night.

The weather cooperated for the rest of the weekend before the festival wrapped up Sunday.
