Despite sunny skies, Forecastle attendance takes a slight hit in 2017

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It was a big crowd, but despite nearly perfect weather attendance at this year's Forecastle Festival was down from 2016.

Organizers say more than 60,000 swarmed Waterfront Park for the three-day event. That's down from last year's record of more than 65,000.

Meanwhile, AT&T said its customers used more than 1.6 tarabytes of data during festival, which is equal to 4.6 million selfies.

AT&T said it used a device called a Cell on Wheels this year to make it easier for customers to connect to the mobile internet.
