The three-day music festival Poorcastle, a “fest for the rest” that aims to be a more accessible and all-local alternative to Forecastle, will return to Breslin Park (1400 Payne St.) this year from Friday, May 19, through Sunday, May 21.

The festival announced the lineup at a party last night at The Whirling Tiger.

Here’s the lineup, with a link to each performer’s Bandcamp, Spotify, or website where possible.

Bands marked with 1 or 2 asterisks are performing as part of Flashback Friday: one asterisk indicates reunion sets, and two asterisks indicates sets by returning Poorcastle artists.

The full schedule and vendor list will be released on Saturday, April 1. Interested vendors can apply on the festival’s website.

Three-day early bird passes are now available for $25. 

The festival is family- and dog-friendly and free to children under 12. It’ll have a splash pad and a playground.
