red corduroy music is proud to be a sponsor of a new music festival in Louisville, KY that’s geared specifically for local and regional music. The Poorcastle Festival will be held on Saturday July 6th at Apocalypse Brew Works, who is also a sponsor. Crescent Hill Radio is another sponsor, and all proceeds of the festival will be donated to Crescent Hill Radio to help them in their pursuit of an FM license. Here’s a little bit of info about the Poorcastle Festival and you can find more info at poorcastle.com.
“The cost of attending music festivals goes up, up, up. Many people’s ability to attend large regional festivals is affected inversely. And so, from this unfortunate quandary was born a new kind of festival: Poorcastle.
Poorcastle is every Louisville, Ky., music lover’s festival in that a) It’s affordable for everyone; b) It’s about music above all else; and c) It’s for a good cause.
For just five bucks, you can enjoy a day’s worth of Louisville music (as well as some regional) by established bands who are donating their time, along with reasonably priced food and drink from local businesses. You can bring your own chairs and blankets, as well as coolers with water and soda (no glass or alcohol, sorry!). Also, if you get there before 4 p.m., admission is absolutely free.
And best of all, the majority of the proceeds will benefit Crescent Hill Radio, community radio at its best that is dedicated to promoting local and regional music.
Unable to afford that other July music festival? We’ve got you covered at Poorcastle. Bring us your tired, your hungry, your poor. As long as they are ready to rock.”
