The fine folks behind Poorcastle have officially released their full schedule for their this year’s annual three day festival, and we’re here to tell you all about it. Taking place July 8th-10th, as usual this event will happen at Apocalypse Brew Works (1612 Mellwood Ave) and all proceeds will benefit non-profit, all-local Crescent Hill Radio WCHQ 100.9 FM and MERF (Musician’s Emergency Resource Foundation). A three day pass will cost you just $10, but if you can’t make it for the whole weekend single day passes cost $5. The doors will open every day at 2PM, with music starting at 2:30 sharp.
As we’ve seen in previous years, the Poorcastle ’16 roster is full of noteworthy bands and artists hailing from all sorts of genres and subgenres including indie rock, hip hop, pop punk, psychedelic rock and even surf rock! While I’m stoked to see a few of my personal favorite bands, in a way I’m a bit more excited to get better acquainted with the acts I’m not overly familiar with.
In addition to the music and fantastic beer provided by Apocalypse Brew Works, there will also be several food trucks on hand as well as a few rotating local dessert options to solve any hunger related predicaments you may face over the weekend. Also, starting June 1, if you purchase music from any of the 33 participating bands/musicians from Guestroom Records, you’ll receive a complimentary Poorcastle single-day wristband (your day of choice). Nice!
Without further adieu, behold: The Poorcastle ’16 full schedule, in all its glory!
