Our neighbors to the north at Louisville's Forecastle Fest passed a big milestone last year: They celebrated 10 years with one of their most solid lineups yet. Well, the announcement for No. 11 just came down the pike this morning, and there are some big names here as well.

This year's Forecastle Festival — taking place July 12-14 at Louisville's Waterfront Park — will feature performances from The Black Keys, The String Cheese Incident, The Avett Brothers, The Flaming Lips, Alabama Shakes, Jim James, Animal Collective, Old Crow Medicine Show, Big Boi, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Toro y Moi, Bob Mould Band and much more, no to mention local performers Mona, Moon Taxi and Night Beds. Now, local live-music enthusiasts may notice that many of the aforementioned acts — The Black Keys and Flaming Lips, and Animal Collective, and Jim James, for starters — will be playing Nashville in the coming months. But so long as you don't mind a little road trip, this here is your best shot at seeing all of 'em for as little as 'round about $125.

Weekend passes for the fest go on sale Wednesday, March 6, at 11 a.m. Central via this link. Hop on after the jump to see the full lineup.
