Jack Harlow creates GAZEBO Festival in Louisville

Louisville native rapper Jack Harlow announced he would be creating a new two-day music festival this May in his hometown: GAZEBO Festival.

Harlow and grammy-award-winning artist, SZA will be co-headlining the event at Louisville’s Waterfront Park May 25 and 26. It will be held in the same place as the over 20-year-old Forecastle Festival, which announced in 2023 it would be taking a break, according to Louisville Public Media. 

Twenty-six well-known artists across two stages will make this year’s lineup, some of which include:

  • Jack Harlow
  • SZA
  • James Blake (DJ Set)
  • Omar Apollo
  • Pinkpantheress
  • Vince Staples
  • Amaarae 
  • Channel Tres 
  • Majid Jordan 
  • Slum Village 
  • Veeze
  • Dahi
  • Jordan Ward 
  • Ravyn Lenae 
  • Rich Homie Quan 
  • BNYX
  • James Savage 
  • Karrahbooo
  • Malcolm Todd

Tickets will go on presale March 6 and to the general public March 8. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will go toward local organizations, such as Neighborhood House, Louisville Ballet, Sowing Seeds with Faith, Queer KY, and more via the Jack Harlow Foundation.

“Jack Harlow is an extraordinary Louisvillian who continues to give back to his hometown,” Louisville mayor Craig Greenberg said in a release. “This is yet another way Jack is showing up for our city and I can’t wait to see the excitement this festival creates.”
